April 15, 1943 – Thursday

Boy did we ever have a rugged day of it today. We hiked 6 miles down to the beach and had a course in demolition. It was mostly on British explosives. In the afternoon we had a lesson on how to put a tank out of order and also a lesson on booby traps. Boy they had some good ones, such as a sign “Americans are Yellow”, Hitler pictures, a helmet, a dead soldier, a toilet, a broom, a table chair, book, fox hole, etc. We then hiked back. I was pretty tired and went to bed early.
