From 12th April to 17th didn't do anything only stopped on the ship.
Went by means of two or three boats drawn by a pinnace to H.M.S. Queen to practice embarking & disembarking on the battleship.
On April 24th all the troops got a bit excited as this was the day we got orders to have everything ready to leave the Malda. During our stay on the Malda we went through a great deal of practice in embarking & disembarking & night attacks. We left the Malda & embarked on a torpedo destroyer & subsequently boarded the H.M.S. Queen at about noon we left the Harbour at Mudros on the battleship
There is a lot of things of interest to be seen on a battleship & we kept ourselves busy looking round.
