August 1-31, 1941

During August the guns and range equipment arrived and intensive artillery drill became the order of the day. When the sections had become proficient in the duties of all members of their section, training of alternate sections was commenced. The machine gun section was trained as a gun section, a gun section as a range section, etc. Training in fortification of a position was undertaken, and a training position was fortified by digging in the gun emplacements and construction of approach trenches. The position was camouflaged as a matter of training. No tactical position was built for the battery as part of the 2nd Bn, 60th CA (AA) was to move to the Bataan Peninsula for permanent station at an early date and the training position was deemed suitable for an emergency.
