Caption written by Kenneth Iyeki: "Barrack 16, apartment 28 where the Iyeki's resided in a palatial horse stable. The balcony which was the only one of its kind in camp proved very useful. The little door under the porch when swung open would reveal many beer and whiskey bottles strewn all over the wet earth. The corner room proved to be very windy, and the wind would slam our door all over the place until we finally put up a windbreaker which in a few days, was torn down because of regulations. The wall took quite a beating as it was used as a backstop everyday."

c. Apr.-Oct. 1942
