Download PDF for this date

British military guards at the Poppenderf and Am Stau camps, near here, where the Exodus refugees are now housed were withdrawn today on orders from the military authorities.

Watch towers in which armed sentries had been mounted were removed as were ##earchlights and barbed wire entanglements. However, a wire fence on the camp berimeter was left standing.
