April 11, 1942

Saturday Ft. Hughes

Things were relatively quiet today. The Japs shelled us a little but the bombers left us alone. We spent the most part of the day getting organized and getting some of the Philippine civilians out from under our feet. I must write all about this place one day but for now I’ll have to put it off. I was never so dirty, smelly, sweaty as I am now – with little hope of any cleaning up.
