He enters an emphatic plea to his relatives for food parcels. That his loss of weight is not surprising is shown by the menu he sets forth. He says he gets a drink of coffee and a slice of bread for breakfast and stewed potatoes for lunch and tea. Please send me something in the line of tucker, he says. He also asks for cigarettes, tobacco, jam or sugar or cocoa, socks, pullovers, soap, and face towels. I am in poverty now, he says. I lost everything before we were captured. We get four marks a week, five cigarettes a day provided, he adds significantly, we all, work. He also says that perhaps 100 or more Maoris were captured at Kalamata on April 29. but they had all been separated to different camps. 'Prisoner of War - Maori Appeals for Eats'.
