After a few days in rest camp we went on beach duty back of Marveilles [Mariveles]. It was rough getting our supplies in there because of the hilly country. We had to bring in fresh water by pack mule.
We’d been on a rice diet for quite scametime past. Here we were lucky enough to get carabou [carabao] meat, and we even shot and ate monkeys for as long as the monkeys lasted, which wasn’t long.
