13th May 1943: 150,000 prisoners
13 Thur. Warm, fine sunny day, tempered by a fresh S.W. wind; lovely. Shopping locally, also to Wimbledon. Short cycle ride in evening, heard the first cuckoo over Kingston Hill way, also saw swifts and house martins, the first this year. The N.African campaign is over and Von Annim and over 150,000 of the enemy have been taken prisoner.
