27 Oct 1918: POW Graudenz

Sunday. Oct 27th.     Great news!  Turkey and Austria are supposed to have chucked in their hands.

The camp has lately been attacked by grippe, or Spanish grippe, a milder form of ‘flu’, which turns in serious cases to double pneumonia.  I hear from home that both Dad & Mater have had it.  I know  it is rife in Scotland and in France.  Looks as if it is all over Southern Europe.
