Diary of Basilio J. Valdes

October 15, 1944 — Sunday

At Sea. It continues to be very hot. At 10 a.m. I attended Mass in the troops Mess, near the kitchen. It was very hot. At 11:45 a.m. another convoy coming from Manis Island joined us. We are now 600 ships. The hardest part is the total blackout at night.
