14th October1916 Saturday
In town yesterday with Miller. Paraded this morning 7.30 22 Div Details under Capt Jackson KSLI and marched for Valetta Custom House. Halfway was sent on in a gharry in a hurry to see if I could arrange a ferry service for our 200 men. Arranged to charter the Steam Ferry. We therefore crossed the Harbour, saving some 3 miles march. Embarked safely on the Tunisian. – rather a poor tub though big enough. Embarkation by tender from the landing stage. Men badly scattered along with other divisions, making it very difficult to fix responsibility for dirty troop decks.
