July 16, 1943 – Friday

We went swimming again the morning hung around the dock for awhile. They are to bring about 3,000 prisoners in today. They brought back a few casualties. I be son-of-a-gun if they didn’t load up at noon and get ready to leave for the docks. While they were loading the truck, Mack and I went swimming again. We were served coffee and doughnuts by the Red Cross and then went aboard ship at 12:00.
