In Autumn of 1940, I was furloughed from the medical unit so I could continue my studies. …

I was assigned to the 2nd Student Company for purpose of my studies. Till now, I have received monthly war-time pay of RM 135 [$1,080], basic military pay of RM 54 [$432] monthly, and ration allowance of RM 64 [$512], = RM 253 [$2,024]. My father has paid for my education; I have also lived with him.
