April 2, 1944 – Sunday
Have set watches back 2 hrs. Church services at 9:00 and 10:00. Went to both of them. Damn hungry so 4 of us swiped a loaf of bread, 4 onions and 4 pickles to make sandwiches in a corner. Still no sunshine. At 9:30 P.M.: it’s storming and raining out. It is really getting rough. Am going to bed and try to sleep. Had chicken for supper. Wasn’t so bad.

April 3, 1944
Been sick all day. Pretty rough riding. No news. Feel dirty. Salt water is hell to wash with. Saw my first whale. It’s warm.

April 4, 1944 – Tuesday
Nothing new. Had 2 more shots, typhus and cholera. Thought of home all day. If only I had something to do to take my mind off these thoughts. Darling, how I wish I was with you and the boys.

April 5, 1944 – Wednesday
Time set back another 1 1/2 hr. We are getting near the equator I guess. Hotter than hell to-day and no place to go. Raining again tonight. They gave us some news of the world’s going on to-nite. We played records for an hour over sound system. Can’t get home out of my mind.
