An anxious time

“an anxious time… but everybody is cheerful….We are getting a good allowance of food, and we have adapted ourselves pretty well to this tent life. I feel just as happy here as I did in hospital with all its comforts… If we come through alive and safe it will be a great experience to look back on.”

ā€” Alexander Macklin
