Diary of Tomas Confesor

24th day, Jan. 20, 1945

Up early. We have eaten another hearty breakfast. We are all fixed up for our trip to the beach. We believe the “Cat” will come down to take us out today.

We feel too anxious to get to our final destination.

We fail to be picked up again today. We are heading for Tolong, where we are to be picked up tomorrow, according to latest instructions.

The Russian steamroller continues to make headway, crushing all opposition on the way.
