30 Oct 1918: POW Graudenz

Wednesday. Oct 30.     Lights suddenly fused at 6pm.  Had a comic evening trying to cook stuff in the dark.  Gerson improvised a torch composed of a tin filled with greasy paper and chips of wood, by the light of which we devoured our mess.  I reckon we ate our peck of dirt last night all right.  Went to bed at 8.
