Oct 27, 1943 – Wednesday

SONY DSCWe may move today.  We got our truck back from the ordnance.  We loaded it up and the sat around.  We lost two men today, Hitchcock and Peacock.  Both hit by the same 88 mm.  Peacock had his arm blown off above the elbow and Hitchcock had one eye tore out and a gash in his forehead.  Hitch was a good friend of mine.  It’s a shame to see him go.  You never know who is next.  We stayed here tonight and will move tomorrow.
