I’m going to continue just displaying scans of my grandfather’s memoirs for now, at least until the American military returns in late 1944/early 1945. This page covers the nine months from September 1942 through May 1943. Refreshing on names again, Charlie, Henry, Arthur, and Ellen are his children and my uncles and aunt; the boys were teenagers and Ellen about 8 at this time. Nena was his ward, now about 18. Incidentally, my dad turned 4 on May 16th of this entry, the day before my grandfather had to return to Santo Tomas.
