January 23, 1944 – Sunday

SONY DSCWe move the first thing this morning and it was a good thing as our area was bombed and strafed. We moved down to the water front in some old station barracks. I don’t like it at all. I would much rather be out in the field. We unloaded the truck and in the evening we had to go out and pick up a mine field. There were 1100 mines altogether to pick up. We got home at 4:30 am. They were firing artillery overhead but it was landing down in the town.
