We are moored near two ships on which a large number of prisoners of war who are employed as dock labourers, have their quarters. They appear to be men of a very good physique. On their ship they were busy with their washing day – left the ship about 2.30 and marched to the station and got on board train which started at 4 p.m. The line runs along by the sea for a long distance and the views of the coast were magnificent. The first halt at Orange at 10 p.m. Here we were shunted into a siding and by the light of a few oil lamps, hot water was served out to the men. During the night I could not sleep very well.
