April 3 Saturday, 1943


ToDay is the Birthday of

Cold and snow this morning.

Went over to the Armory and left there at 5:20 pm by bus for New Bedford.

Arrived there at 7 pm.

We had a locker room turned over to us and had a snack at 10:30 pm. Four companies went to bed at 11 pm.

I had to get up at 2 am and stand guard on post 3 till 3 am. Then back to bed, but we’re not allowed to remove out clothes as we were subject to call.

From 8 pm to 10:30 pm we had three reels of war pictures to watch.

One was [reoccurring] on the the night patrol.

One was on the use of camouflage and the concealment during an attack.

The third was on how the Military Intelligence piece together information got from prisoners.
