Posted Diary yesterday at
Gibraltar still here- There was a Bull Fight on the Spanish Main, but we could not go in Uniform or should have been interned- Diabolo is the great game here among the children, & they are very skilfull at it.
6.30 pm everyone has to report back & if from neutral ground go home.
We shall be here for some days yet repairing ship I am pleased to see so much of
Gibraltar- Had lunch at the Mediteranean Club & saw the Cathedral, an unpretentious building- Cigars & Tobacco very cheap here & good.
