16th September  Saturday
Temperature gone at last yesterday. Allowed up for an hour and a half on deck. The Mediterranean is as blue as it was last October but of course the voyage has not got the charm of that one. I miss the battalion officers and men more than I can say, but still it is a glorious change after Salonika. It has come to what I thought it would. While the battalion is in Salonika I want to be in Salonika but I wish to goodness they would push off the Batt.
Interesting coast in a way that of Greece proper and its islands – very rugged but capable of great beauty in the rising or setting sun.
All this time I am on fish and milk puddings etc.
17th Sept [?]Qile Sunday
Up again just after service. Developed a slight cold. Stayed on deck from 11 to about 5.30 when it became chilly. Out of sight of land and running west towards Malta. Wrote Father, Wilfie and Anderson. Turned in usual time.
