COIJR1ER HOME, FROM DIEPPE fly Sergt. £vereft Ogfesby As. Told To Men no Ducrksen V The Ward Of The Dying xv 7 y I also remember that during Ihis period at Rouen that one of the French nurses who was very good to all of us, ;iml who kept 'up a constant run of gaiety to keep the men cheered up/was led'a way by (lie German guards after a time. We'never kn'ew why, unless (he Germans felt that she was too good to us. ' Sometime after Ihis we were told< , that .'we were to be moved lo a regular prisoner of war hospital in Germany.'Some of the more seri ously wounded men luul already been moved. We had been Rouen more than three weeks. Tliey came ' for UB o;ie afternoon,-,graded iis andt pla'ced us on f slrelchers. We were carried to the train by hos- pilal ambulances hut ! the drivers, were none too careful. Some of the boys got quite a painful jolting. After what seemed lo be a long „ jolting 'ride We ber e 1 ' Oglesby th e station to be loaded or the train. And afte onto this train, the r being loaded Germans in , oJmrge seemed lo be at last Germans who were making n effort lo make us comfortable. Betler Treatment The trnin pulled out at about 8 P.' 711. Dial ' night. And though we were being treated well for the .first time since being taken prisoner, tli c food was still nothing lo brag about. It consisted of black bread, .some soup and a /£"J<ige tasting German jam. No ?.' but a hungry prisoner would eaten the stuff, but at, that time I didn't care. I was suffering a relapse and an attack of "dy- sentary. Everything i ate was coming back up. The Germans on this train also talked a lot [ 0 the prisoner?, those of them who could 'speak English. They nsked us what, sort of iood We had gotten back in England. When we (old them it. was better food than they were offering us they refused to believe it and thought we were crazy. They swore that the' German submarines were slopping all the ships going to England .-inj that nothing was getting through. They thought England was starving. One German guard I remembered bad beeji an evangelist, before the war', and though lie was very friendly we also thought he was very stupid. One day tli c news cam e through that Stalingrad had fallen. .This fellow came running into pur car, sliouting at the top of 'his "voice, '•Stalingrad has falK en," He became 'very; cheerful u ovci i ' this piece of news and kept lelling us 1 it' would be time until the but ' matter of superior German arrtiy would win. The war would soon be over, he said, f Under British Doctors y'The "first voice We heard when the train stopped at , Lansdorf, Germany, our destination, wai a British"voice. It came from a British doctor who had been captured at Dunkirk and who was brought- were and to arrange for taking )is to the prison hospital. His appearance had an almost magical etfeci CM tl'.e men and it was nlmosl ns though he hod'suddenly moved into another world. We discovered (hnt the Germans were allowing the British doctors lo nm Die prison hospitals without Interference. This doctor promised us food, clg- ni'cls and tea. Some of the boys became deliriously happy . for (lie moment, but our troubles were nol yet aver. First w e had lo go through another one of those ordeals Ihe Germans were so practiced at putting us through. Tliey loaded a 'group of us on an Iron wheeled wagon; tied it behind a truck and started out toward the prison camp. Some of the boys with broken lirn&s snf- ferecl terribly from the jolting on that several mile trip. There wasn't even room for them lo He down and they had to sit up. At the hospital I was classified as having, a gun shot wound 1n Ihe right liing. 1 was put to bed and told not to move. I was told that neglect of my hmg had caused an Infection in my chest: On lop of that 1 had dysehtary. These British doctors couldn't understand 'low 'I had arrived at the prison camp alive and said that by all rules I should have been dead': And though it seemed to 'me that they were the best doctors In the world and gave me the best' care they could. I did become weaker and weaker. .They began putting the needle Into ' my' -'every two or three davs lo drain off 'the fluid. " ' , Sfy Case "Hopeless" Finally, I became so ill they carried me to Block I\>ur.' It was -he ward reserved for' hopeless cases, where men were taken to die: knew they had laken me there :o die. Many times before, since Dieppe, I had felt certain that "I was going to die and sometimes ivhcn the pain was bad f had even wanted to die. But now, when :hcy carried me to Block Pour and given me up as hopeless I became stubborn and made up- my mind I would not die. I stayed in Block Pour 31 days'. I don't even remember what happened. I only know that I lived and did not die, I ' that when' the doctors saw me lying, lay after-day without dying, v they finally cam e to give me "another examination. "They decided to 'give ne one more check over and de- .ermine if anything could be done or me. ' . First, they drained off the fluid •igain, this time with a needle big around as my little finger.'Tliouif;i hey had given an anesthetic,' It, "ell ns though my King would burst.
