April 17, 1943 – Saturday

Went out with the company again today and the 2nd Pl. was attached to the 2nd Bn of the 7th Infantry. We laid a mine field of British mines this morning and after we got them laid out we had to pick up and lay it again. I’m telling you when you lay out 1,500 mines its not easy. We had a battle against tanks and the tanks won. They out flanked us. We then had a talk by the General. We had a pretty rugged time of it and I am pretty tired so I guess I’ll go to bed.
