As November 1942 progressed, Sidney was heading towards his second Christmas as a POW of the Germans.  Sidney managed to send three more postcards home before the month was out, one to his sister Barbara, who was working at the Children's Hospital in Bradford and two to his parents.  In both of the postcards written on the 22 November Sidney mentions that football is now finished as the pitch is under water.  In the bottom postcard, dated the 30th November, Sidney mentions that they had a Bridge tournament and that they were putting on Aladdin for the Christmas panto.
