We have two typewritten newspapers published by the men:- The Bi-
Weekly "Prevaricator" and the daily "Kyarra Truth"; both are extremely interesting and amusing.
The C.O., Col. Martin, held an inspection of all units on the Promenade Deck at 2 p.m.
Came close up to great, rugged, towering masses of rock about 1.30 p.m.
Anchored off Aden about 3 pm. – The Colonel and small party only ones to go ashore – Natives came out in bumboats selling goods, which ceased at dark
Kyarra steamed off again at 11 p.m; about ¼ of an hour after a liner converted into an Auxiliary Cruiser.
