Letters, diaries and photographs from World War II

Monday 9th April 1945

We spend another lazy day, charpoy bashing and bathing. More and more arrive. Basha 3 are a cheerful crowd and we get along well together.

A charpoy is  a bed used especially in India consisting of a frame strung with tapes or light rope. John’s comment means he spent all day resting.
