Went to the show last nite & saw a fairly good show. Not much happened today only thank God. We will be finished tonite & leave Thu noon. A big transport was pulling into the harbor this morn as we were leaving for location. There were lots of destroyers & sub chasers in the harbor too. A big convoy must have returned successfully. They had an alert here today & all guns were manned on the Fort. It was rumored that several Jap ships were sighted off the coast. No body.
