Okinawa Diary – May 10, 1945


May 10, 1945, continued…

… time in nearly a year the squadron is together again. I’m glad to see all the boys again, especially Bob Peel.

We pitch our pup tents again because our tents haven’t been unloaded. Air raid alert again tonight.

I was down at the lab which C-flight has set up at the foot of the hill. They showed me where a Jap bomb had landed and burned the roof of the main lab building. This had happened a few days ago.
