Diary of Basilio J. Valdes

March 12, 1942 — Thursday

After breakfast went to Buenavista Rest House with Mr. Canceran to attend to some correspondence. I discussed that 80% of enlisted men of Philippine Army are using Enfield rifles without extractors and have to use a bamboo rod to extract the shell after each shot. Returned home at 12:30 p.m.

At 3:30 p.m. I returned to Buenavista Rest House to finish some work — Returned to Panubigan at 6:30 p.m.
