21 men in this Commando, amongst them 17 Australians and one New Zealander. 19 of the men are working on farms and 2 in a timber mill.
They stated to be treated very well, but complained about the long working hours and the fact that they have to feed the cattle on Sundays.
They take all the meals on the farms where they are working. In the camp is a stove to prepare the private food. Some men in this Commando need new uniforms. The Man of Confidence at Stalag has been informed.
Here again the only complaint was the working on Sundays on the farms (feeding the cattle). An experienced prisoner is working here as a Sanitator. He has all the necessary medicaments.
The Red Cross parcels arrive quite regularly and each man gets his weekly parcel.
The men asked for a football and boxing gloves.
This is a good camp.
