RO: Oh, fences, searchlights, when we arrived by the time because we were delayed for two weeks, by the time we arrived there the barrack which is originally set up for I think four quarters, I mean, you know, by the time we arrived, the fourth, one of the apartments as they were called was split again, yet again so we just had enough room for the bed, for four beds like this and enough of an aisle for me to walk all the way to the end. Because I was the girl and I had to go way to the end right by a window with no curtains and the searchlight was right over there and every night the searchlight would come all night long, hit my face and of course 'cause we had no curtains it was like, it was hard to go to sleep.
