Jan. 29 – 30 – 31 – 42

We’ve been turned into the 71st Infranty [Infantry]. Rifles and ammunition have been handed out to all the men. Its funny to be carrying a rifle. Put on beach duty at Boa – Boa – Point. Beach lined by us with barbed wire. Machine gun pits also put up. Had a rough time moving 50 – cal. ammunition up to the beach, over the hills. Eating rice now.
