Milne Bay was wet and muddy. Shaggy Ridge was wet and muddy.

When I joined this battalion, the native battalion, first you get infantry battalion. We did a lot of patrolling. Yes, we had very hard times patrolling five or six days, and we were wet all through all the time, couldn't light fires and couldn't take your boots off or take your hat off at night.
