Sam Martin 09


Bread and water - 3 slices of bread 3 times a day.  By law the bread had to be of a certain weight and could only be given to someone 3 days in a row and then a regular diet for the next 3 days.  The first 28 days he was on and off this diet the whole time.  Being weak the guards forcibly put the uniform on him.  He was then put in barracks with regular soldiers.  Once there he took off the uniform.
