Squadron got a couple P-35s today to fly until 40’s ready. Tomorrow we fly, been over a month. Field looks awful small on ground.

The 21st and 34th were being given the old P-35As discarded by the 24th Pursuit Group as the 3rd and 17th Pursuit switched to 50 P-40Es that had arrived at the end of September 1941. Dyess and Marett had been informed prior to leaving Hamilton Field that 50 P-40Es would await them on their arrival in the Philippines, but the crated ships had not yet reached Manila.
