Posted by Dick on March 3, 1916
A much calmer day than yesterday, but there is still a good swell. We passed three empty transports this morning, evidently coming from Alexandria or Port Said. We steered a zig-zag course all morning and have seen no sign of a submarine yet. Saw a lot of flying fish about this afternoon, they kept three or four hundred yards out from the ship. They looked like small white gulls at first sight, some of them flew quite high out of the water and went 15 to 20 yards before they went in again.

I am officer of the watch from 10 o'clock tonight till 6 o'clock tomorrow morning.
