H. Beaber - In the Philippines - Sunday, December 21, 1942-1945

Off to Pinagkaisahan, but find that everyone of our friends have left, returned to Manila in time for the meeting with Cecil and the others. A raid came during the meeting, but we continue. I guess if a bomb fell on us during meeting, it would be hard for us to be in a better place.

The raid continued till after the meeting so that the folks could not go home immediately. All clear came about 11:30. No report of damage and in fact we heard nothing except the wham wham of anti-aircraft fire.

Situation in Hong Kong is getting worse. Japanese have landed in Davao and fighting is fierce.
