27 February 1916

Posted by Dick on February 27, 1916
A glorious day to start with, a hot sun and strong wind, & I feel very fit indeed as I have quite got my sea legs. Several squalls about midday and almost a gale and getting very rough towards evening. We passed quite close to a three-masted schooner, the "Cimbria" of Dartmouth, bound for England. She was fairly burying her nose. I am officer of the watch from ten o'clock tonight til 6 tomorrow morning.
