Saturday January 23rd 1943

No sign of our friends the Jerries today but as soon as it was light enough, there were warplanes to greet us. Those chaps fly so low as to wave to us. Last trip (I may have mentioned it in my other diary) there was a seagull with only one leg. I am sure it is the same one we have seen today in approximately the same place. Others are just as convinced as I am.

The pump man has given me a nice piece of calico to make myself an apron with.

My word! it was hot last night. I twisted and turned all night. I had no sleep and of course being awake I could not help but think, think, think. I feel just unwell today. My goodness I shall be glad when we get there to get ashore for a bit. I went to bed this afternoon for two hours and slept well , hot as it is. The weather is more tropical now. Boat drill today at 4 o clock. Clocks back another 1/2 hour.
