   Disembarking at Tarmstadt train station the POWs left Tarmstadt and walked another 3km to reach Camp Marlag Milag und Nord. Here is the road between Tarmstadt and Camp Marlag at Westertimke.          Sun 4.2.45: …Verden 12000 – 1500 – first water of trip – atrocious treatment – Tarmstadt at 16.30 – left train and marched 3 km to Marlag – reach camp 17.30, kept waiting in wet until midnight while 2000 POW were searched – finally in bed about 0100 hrs & so to sleep.      -             POW Diary, Douglas William Finlay, RAF, DFC           Tarmstadt at 1630 hrs – left train and marched 3 kms to a Larlag – reached it at 1800 hrs but kept waiting in heavy fog and mist on waterlogged road until after midnight while 2,000 POWs were individually searched. This was the lat straw. Quiote a few collapsed waiting to enter the camp. Finally we got to sleep on the brick  floor of a hut with a bit of wood straw at 0230 hrs      -             J.A Rydings POW in Stalg Luft III hut with Douglas Finlay      We quickly tumble out of the train and then move off slowly up the road, with frequent stops, to arrive at a Navy camp in the dark. Instead of going straight in – and I don’t think I shall ever be so glad to see a POW camp – we stand in the slush and cold for three hours. This wait is absolutely the end – exhausted, dirty, hungry, and thirsty – and so near rest and warmth!      -             Willatt, POW,       -             ‘OPS’ Victory At All Costs, Andrew R.B. Simpson, p390
