We had orders to shoot ' any man who came toward us During the night we learned that guarc ! s -°n the pier killed a Jap who had sneaked in with a drum of gasoline, intending to set the pier afire. It would have been the end of us, for the pier was loaded with high explosives. At dawn, the enemy sent its first bombers. There were only two ot them, and five men were killed.
