There is a handwritten caption '[obscured] Malana & Colombo holding camp. We found out, soon after getting there that the camp was often raided by gangs who would cut the moskito [sic] nets which would fall over us so I adopted a dog to sleep under my charpoy who could warn me. We also chained our tin boxes together. This worked until moving on to Negombo air station. The dog was ok with a new owner.'
