H. Beaber - In the Philippines - Tuesday, December 9, 1942-1945

Nothing of importance occurred. We boys did a lot of walking around to see the different places like Singapore, Hong Kong, etc.

That night, we had several air-raid warnings. Cecil and I would pile out of bed in a hurry, pull on our trousers, slip on our shoes, and hurry out of the house to look up into the sky to see if we could see any places. After about three times, I got tired and decided to stay in bed that night. We did see a bit of anti-aircraft fire for the first time, but not much else.

We had a small Gospel Meeting tonight with four men attending - pretty hard to preach in the dark. Blackout!
