War Journal - Oct. 7, 1944

Back on alert today - but still raining! Plenty mud everywhere! Spent the day on the end of a shovel. The Germans did a wonderful job of destroying this field. All combat crews here pull KP-Guard duty - & work details continually unless flying - regardless of rank. A shed has been set up to eat under now - food has improved considerably & we will soon have light (rationed) & water (?). Finished the floor to our tent today. Those without floors are living & sleeping in a watery slush! A 16mm show is setup in one of the hangers - saw "White Cargo" tonight. Will be very glad when there are lights so we can read & write.
