Interview in Manila with a released internee from the Los Baños Japanese-operated internment camp in the Philippines. A microphone is set on a tripod stand for the interview.

Interview in Manila with a released male internee, Stanley Kingsbury, of the Los Baños camp following its liberation from the Japanese by U.S. and Filipino forces the month before (13 days before the interview). A microphone is set on a tripod stand for the interview. An interviewer is present. He introduces Stanley Kingsbury. Mr. Kingsbury (possibly Mr Kingsley?) describes twice daily roll-call operations in the camp and that it was announced there would be no role-call that day, and that the internees knew something was different. He talks about hearing a drone sound later in the day and trying to interpret what it meant (on his 1144th day in camp). He recounts seeing planes flying very low, and a white sheet dropping out of a plane and realizing suddenly that there are many paratroopers jumping out. He says they lay down on the barracks floor during the firefight that ensued between the Allied forces and the Japanese. U.S. GI's came in and told the internees to evacuate and that they could only take a few things and had to leave immediately. They rolled down to the shores of Laguna de Bay nearby where they came under fire from a Japanese machine gun nest that was subsequently taken out. He relates all the internees crossing the lake to safety under well armed escort. He expresses how delighted he is to be free again.
