I am having grapes as a refreshment after the volleyball game. I bought these grapes from an Arab seller by exchanging them for cigarettes which were issued to soldiers on active service free every 10 days with pay. The pay for privates was 1 palestinian pound and 300 mils ( = 1 pound sterling and 6 shillings) . I did not smoke.

Sitting on the army truck is Franek Michalak who shared my fate in the Siberian labour kolhoz. He also came from Pinsk.
