4.8.45. Cool day with rain threatening. Porridge breakfast, rice & greens tiffin & rice & a little steamed salt fish which came in today in lieu of meat, for tea. Heavy rain in evening & concert cancelled. The inspection this morning was a Red Cross inspection & the usual thing happened. Mr Zindel, surrounded by a solid mass of Japanese walked through the camp, into a couple of huts, to the hospital & so away. In the hospital he asked questions which the Japs just didn't answer. He was allowed however to give Col White3 a quotation of lettuce seed prices at 10,000Yen a catty. Let us hope this will be the last.
