Snow-covered deck


“The deck has now been more or less covered with snow for the last few days. We try to scrape it off but it freezes on so hard that it is impossible to get it all off. The scene looks quite Christmas-like. The small pool we are in has now completely frozen over with thin ice and we are still prisoners but we hope yet that there will soon be another general opening up.”

— Thomas Orde-Lees
