Sept. 2, 1943
The camp looks deserted. The wheels pulled out at 2 a.m. – We pull out at 4 p.m. Today with the Tanks. It will be a night move and probably a dirty one. Things seem to be starting Terrific air activity today. We will move 15 miles of Riposto to Santa Teresa. Started at 4 p.m. And travelled by way of Catania Plains to the Gorna Lunga bridge, the one which held up the advance on the Catania for so long. Heine bombed us coming through Catania, but did no harm. We arrived on the beach opposite Mt. Etna at about 11 p.m.. Two tanks turned over. It was another miserable trip.
