We arrived on a very rocky beach clutching our bags in our arms. We climbed large, sharp rocky cliffs that lead to the battlefield. We were going to fight the Japanese, suddenly the ground behind turned to stone every second soldier turned to statues. I was getting ready to die on the battlefield not like this. I started running, I could see the battlefield in sight and some Japanese soldiers standing with guns and shells ready to fight. They were startled to see hundreds of soldiers running towards them panicking with no guns in our arms. Everything was stone. It was a terrible sight seeing all my mates dying. But it was too late, I turned around stone covered my body turning me to a helpless statue.
