26 November, 1944

Learned that last night they dropped bombs on base K area, not far from us. A few men were killed outright & four men sheltering in a foxhole were incinerated by burning gasoline.

We had alerts all night & the AA was very heavy. One Jap dived in a gay burst of flame, & some time later there was a tremendous flash probably caused by a loaded bomber exploding in mid air.
