Dec. 22/41

Today was the first time, I believe that bombs were dropped in Manila itself. Port Area was bombed several times. The sound of a falling bomb is the most awful sound I have ever heard. It reminds are somewhat of a cross between a fast express train and a shrill siren. It’s a stout heart which does not sink a little at the sound of bombs falling, not knowing whether or not it may land directly in one’s vicinity.
