20 April 1918

On Saturday. April 20th.  Fourteen of us were sent to Karlsrühe.  We started about 10. a.m. and had a German officer in charge, who was very decent.  We had rations, cheese, meatpaste, sandwiches, and a boiled egg, from the Hospital and in addition he got us a hot supper that night, a rissole, macaroni and beaucoup potatoes in their skins at the restaurant of  a station at which we stopped, and a hot lunch next day – goat’s meat and potatoes – the last decent meal we were to have for three weeks.  The money for these meals he subtracted from the amounts to our credit on his list (for I had cashed at Hannover a cheque for £4).
