Scouts mopping up on Agl. Pt. Rumored that Japs broke through our line, no confirmation. Sqd’n put on alert

Dyess received new orders this day to take his men back to Quinauan Point to reinforce the 45th Philippine Scouts, who had been unable to wipe out the dug-in Japanese during their six days of fighting, even with the addition of three light Stuart tanks. That afternoon, Dyess reported in to the Executive Officer of the 45th, who briefed him and his men on the gravity of the situation.
