North African Internment

I was the only woman interned there [Sidi Bel Abbès, Algeria, home of the Foreign Legion]. I was put into the hall where PE was, where there was PE for the children, on a sack with straw and watched over by a soldier with a bayonet. I asked the French officer could I please have the key to lock myself in, and he was kind enough to give me the key.
