June 12–13, 1945

June 12 — Pte Cooke and Cpl Rooney left today for Burma. Tomorrow Sgt. Sprecker, Cpl Chesnick and L/Cpl Nusti will also be leaving for Burma. Archie and I went over to 21 FDS — right outside of Bremen. It is a hospital in the middle of a large Russian Camp. Not an ideal place to be. They are closed now, moving out to Holland. On return I found our movement orders waiting. Our Advance Party leaves for the Utrecht district tomorrow morning. Our main body will leave on June 15.

June 13 — Our Court Martial case is being held this morning. Maj. McKenzie and I have to attend a Q Conference at Rear Corps. Corps are breaking up today, so this will be the last meeting I expect.
