The Medical Regulation Re Roll Call

The bell which called the internees to Rollcall twice a day.

Attention.... Eyes front .... Number off ....

One of the features of camp life was Rollcall at 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., held in six different parts of the camp. This sometimes involved numbering off in Japanese. In the Guard Room the totals of each section were chalked up, totalled and the number of internees working on shift or sick in bed were allowed for. Then the bell which had called everyone to Rollcall rang once again, authorising us to disperse.
