Diary of Basilio J. Valdes

February 16, 1942 – Monday

General MacArthur reported that all was O.K. The submarine would be arriving Thursday.

The Japanese are still shelling us but they hit the water.

We dined on the SS Legaspi. We had just finished when two shells, fell on the dock near the boat. All the laborers ran away. We had to leave the boat and go to the tunnel.
