8. Oktober 1940
On the third day of my presence here, I am ordered to a terrain review which will be led by the battalion commander, and attended by almost all the officers of the battalion, the officer candidate sergeants and some older active sergeants. The purpose of this three-day mission is, besides providing military training, to liven up the monotonous service by providing variety. We are travelling in a comfortable coach through the beautiful Outer Subcarpathia. In the beginning, in the Polish settlement area, we remain unnoticed by the population. Later, however, we are followed by friendly shouts and waves. We are in Slovakian settlement area.
We reach Krynica, which like Zakopane is one of the most beautiful and most famous Carpathian spas. Here we will stay for three days in the elegant "New Spa Hotel", from where we will start our tour of the area. During one of these exercises, Major Haarhaus gives me the task of using a heavy machine gun platoon in a long-range attack! Since he does not criticise anything, I think I did it right.
