Excerpt from From Kastamuni to Kedos: Being a Record of Experiences of Prisoners of War in Turkey, 1916 1918

Again, we do not deal with all the prison camps in Turkey, but only with those which some seventy of us learnt, only too well, to know: not all who were at Kastamuni came to Kodos, and not all at Kedos had seen Kastamuni; but enough of us kept together through all shifts and changes to give a continuity to the record which would be lost were any other camps included in it. Lastly, the story is couched in the lighter vein. We chafed beneath the whims of individual commandants, we suffered from the inefficiency and the lack of organisation which characterises everything in Turkey, and at times we had, some of us at least, more serious charges to bring against our captors; but the Turks were not out to inflict on us systematic bad treatment, and from the time we reached camp and could more or less run our own show we, as officers, were not so badly off. At the time, indeed, our complaints were loud and not unjustified, but much that grievously irked us then seems in retrospect more laughable than tragic. There was tragedy enough in Turkey, but it was rather for the men than for the officers! The Turk, who cares little for his own men, cared nothing for ours, and from sickness and neglect, hunger and brutality, three-quarters of them miserably died.

Knowing what they endured, it is not for us to make much of our own grievances.
