6 June 1942

Led by Stubby, 1,500 PWs came from O’Donnell on 2 June. Three more groups of 1,500 each arrived on successive days. Few brought mosquito nets or blankets. Most in horrible shape from dysentery, malaria and malnutrition. They collapse in camp streets, die, and lie for days because their companions too weak to bury them. Twenty-six very sick majors assigned to our barracks.
