Caption written by Kenneth Iyeki: "On the left is a warehouse, futher down is the music conservatory and finally at the end of the road is the mess mine building. We used to play on the tin roof of the warehouse. I abruptly stopped such shenanigans when an official angrily told me that a mine which I often ducked under was one of the 'hottest' in camp and that if I wanted to live I had restrict my pleasure to ye olde terra firma. May God bless that man!"

c. Apr.-Oct. 1942
