[Monday 20 November 1916]

Re monument VIDE BIBLE it was here St Paul was wrecked, & received no "small Kindness from the "Barbarians, & Mother will know about the Viper that was brought to life after lighting a fire.
Malta is a barren island & all earth for agriculture is imported- We anchored & kept very quiet & no lights, as the last Troopship was fired at by Submarine in this anchorage.
It is rumoured we now go to Salonika, but no one knows for Certain-

At my mess table are 2 Welshmen 1 Scotchman & an Englishman & I amuse them with black fellow yarns & we are a happy family & worry not but I cannot help thinking of the wee wife I left behind.
