February 13, 1942

Bombing of Cabcaben dock area today with incendiary bombs. Many civilians who had no business there were nearly including children woman were killed & maimed. Wounds contained white phosphorous which smoked unless put under water while being removed. A very gruesome & tearful sight. 411 civilians should have been evacuated from the theater of operations when we first came to Bataan, 50 to 80 killed altogether.
