The Diary of Prisoner 17326

John K. Stutterheim

Fordham University Press

After the British arrive and begin to attend to the needs of the former prisoners, the author learns that his brother is a gifted negotiator when he attempts to haggle for supplies. The merchants who have set up shop outside of the camp are enamoured by his brother's wit and jokes, and as such, the author's family is able to secure basic luxuries and enjoy a decent diet. In the time between the Japanese desertion and the British arrival, however, the author contracted scabies and developed an abscess under his armpit. When he seeks medical care from a Navy surgeon, he finds that along with the nurses dispatched, the attitudes of the medical staff are gruff and somewhat unfriendly, which serves to isolate the survivors from everyone else.
