Show Summary Details


While many are disappointed with the British efforts to keep the Pedumas at bay, the author and his family have made out a comfortable existence in a British refuge. The author and his family also are faced with swollen ankles and shins, an aftereffect of the starvation faced in the labour camp. The boys also try to return to school in a makeshift class but faced dwindling supplies of just about everything; the author himself recounts that he did very poorly. The chapter closes with the family celebrating Christmas when the church they attend is shelled, but fortunately, the attack is brief and the service is able to finish.
