Even though the daily food rations were not sufficient an inordinate number of calories were burned up through too much physical activity. At the top of Fort 13, the netball (a team game that resembles basketball) was played. According to Mr Sam Kydd ' a good deal rougher than would normally be allowed'. Therefore, rugby matches were limitted to twelve minutes each way and football matches lasted only thirty minutes.Mr Jim Roberts added taht the mixture of netball and rugby ' was no game for the squeamish"
