The Diary of Prisoner 17326

John K. Stutterheim

Fordham University Press

In this chapter, the author tells of how his family journeyed to the labour camp in which his father was being detained. Along the way, the author found himself seated on a train beneath cargo animals, walking through a Chinese settlement searching for a place to sleep, and riding a horse-drawn carriage along a dusty, unpaved road. When the author finally encounters his father, he tells of the sickly condition that his father's labour had inflicted on him, detailing the staggering amount of weight his father had lost. The chapter closes with a Japanese soldier truncating the reunion and the author's journey home.
