26 June 1918: POW Graudenz

Wednesday, June 26, 1918: “some stuff sent in barrels, called fish paste”

Wednesday June 26th.     Got from the canteen some stuff sent in barrels, called fish paste.  Comic yellow stuff – seems to be a mixture of mussels, gherkins, sour ruben, garlic &c.  Still my innards are not disposed to be too critical.
Later:-  I misjudged my inside.  It absolutely rebelled after three mouthfuls.  Still, although I didn’t eat it, it went down well!!  No sign yet of the biscuits or Red Cross parcels.
