Oct 22, 1943 – Friday

SONY DSCPacked up and moved today. We moved about 2 miles and stopped for awhile. They are shelling our area that we are to move into so we had to wait until they stopped. We moved down into a large valley this time about 5 more miles. You could hear a tank battle going on in the distance. We set up our tent and issued out a few things. The fellows are sweeping mines out ahead of the infantry and were sniped at by snipers. Two of the fellows are feared of being captured. Caught a German motorcycle and rider. They were on patrol. Can still hear the tanks battling and some shells light not far away.
