Czech Army in Exile
I was given a hammock to sleep on, a great thing you know. Others slept on benches. 1st we were fighting to sit down, then we had something to eat & became the greatest of friends. We had no idea where we’re going. We sailed the Mediterranean. It was rather rough. I was given duty to be on guard. I don’t know what for. I felt seasick. I fell asleep. An officer found me & said: ‘Don’t do that again!’ Ah. I just joined the army, I don’t know what to do. He said ‘Never mind! You’re a man. You mustn’t give way to sea-sickness’. So I stood there with my gun. I had no idea about how to use it.
