4 March 1916

Posted by Dick on March 4, 1916
Went up on deck soon after five, and mounted the submarine guard at 6.15 am. A very calm day and no sign of a submarine. We shall get to Alexandria during the night but shan't be able to get into the fort till the morning. I have seen no land since we left Malta, so shan't be sorry to see it again.

I heard this evening that there's a wireless message that two transports have been sunk between Gibraltar and Malta. If it's true, we've been very lucky.
