[Tuesday 21st November 1916]
(The following paragraph is crossed out)
You must be careful to omit all military news of value- I heard of a Commander of a Cruiser losing his job, coz his Mother in law put an advt in paper re marriage of her daughter to Commander so & so of HMS ________ inserting ship's name.
Val St Pauls Bay yesterday evening & now en route for Salonika I shall be glad to see something of that cosmopolitan place- A fast Cruiser escorts us, it will be a full week ere I reach Alexandria or more- I posted a letter for Dolly at Malta. I will send these notes from Egypt if I get there!!!! The Aegean Sea is not a pleasant place just now in trialling with submarines
