Warsaw surrendered on September 27, but we continued our march until October 5, when we found ourselves encircled, along with some detachments of the regular army, by the Germans, near the village of Krzywda (Injustice).

British troops sang a hit song, “We’re gonna hang out the washing on the Siegfried line”.
