Altheim, Germany

The Landsturm has been called out and leaves to-day for the Front. These men are the last to be requisitioned, being elderly. After long waiting among Jews, Infidels, and Turks, I at last got entrance to the Chief of Police’s office, had my passport taken, paid one mark fifty, and was told to come back on Thursday, when it would be returned from Berlin. The Chief was a gruff, disagreeable old man, who, to my amiable “Guten Tag” and “Adieu” vouchsafed no reply.
