Diary of Basilio J. Valdes

March 29, 1942 – Sunday

Attended early Mass in the town church. After breakfast left for the landing field. We took off at 8:30 a.m. and landed in Adelaide at 12:30 p.m. Some American officers were waiting for us. We had a magnificent luncheon at the Adelaide Hotel. At 3 p.m. we boarded the special train that was going to take us to Melbourne. Fine train. Trip comfortable. The sleeping cars very similar to the Pullmans.
