10 May 1918

Friday. May 10th. Had a short railway journey to Karlsruhe, a very jolly/country town.  Stuck in an ex-hotel there, and locked four in a room.  Usual canteen things, cigarettes, sardines &c. brought up to us.  We cashed cheques on the spot, I for £5.*  Food quite good though distinctly more-ish and largely vegetarian.  Still, after Rastatt, I’ll never grumble again – at least, not seriously.
* My Rastatt cheque has not materialised yet. May 28th
