Aug. 30 & Sept. 1, 1943

Aug. 30: moved with Section back to the 14th S.M.O. Batn. For this next show, which I suppose will be the invasion of Italy.

Sept. 1: Everything is ready to move to Riposto, just east of Mt. Etna. The wheels will move off at 2 a.m. Tomorrow and all my section will go with them, with the exception of myself – Jeep, Slim, I and chief, with Coyle on motorcycle.
