December 8th, 1941

—Yes, the Japs bombed P.H. We are in the war naturally. Why aren’t bombing or shelling us—nothing is taking place. That day we get to test fire our guns—at jap planes returning down North Channel after bombing (Cavite) range of 22,000 feet—well at least it got some of the jitters out of our system and found No. I gun buffer closed—gave the 3” A.A. men practice which of whom some had never seen guns fired before—air raids every day, but not attacking the Rock.
