Monday 8th March 1943

Roll, roll, pitch and toss. These seas have been hellish today. As though they want to break our back. However, we have managed to cook. I do not know how we are in warmer weather though for we have turned due south avoiding subs.  One was near us last night and was chased by two destroyers.

We have not seen the Carrier today, too rough. Supposed to be in Avonmouth on March 18th.

Sunday 7th March 1943

10.30 . tired and dizzy.  Yes, I've had dizzy feelings all day. Perhaps that is because I had a whole chicken for my dinner and two pork chops for my tea.

Some planes left our carrier this morning and came back a few hours later. We heard they had located a sub. which accounts for our changing course so much today.

We are rolling heavily now. I'm almost afraid to go to  bed because it is awful lying here and not able to sleep.

I've played cards 'crib' with Chippy again tonight and beat him three out of four.
