Diary of Albert E. Holland

December 6, 1944

[9]

December 6th – Total blackout ordered for the camp – What’s up?

Today, the Japanese said that they would bring into camp 150-200 kilos of freshly pressed soy bean meal per day – On the other hand, our cooking oil rations would be cut from 34 to 17 kilos per day, and our salt ration even more radically reduced. Finally, nothing could be done about shortweight rice deliveries (shortages recently have averaged 20%).

Well the soy meal will be welcome for its protein content – The gravy was good tonight.

No news about relief supplies – 2 more deaths.
