April 7th, 1942

Bombers overhead shortly after dawn. Ceaseless flying of enemy observation and dive bombers. Regt CP moved forward about 300 yds on south slope of hill. Foxhole digging took up greater part of morning. Small arms firing near CP at 2:00 PM. General retreat at 5:30 P.M. At 1:00 AM Apr. 8th received permission from Lt. Col. Brokaw to go to medical supply. Took Capt Francis D.C. with me because his car was at Gen Hosp # 2.
