25th May 1916

At Sheerness. Fine day. The ‘planes have been busy today. For the first time I saw an aviator loop-the-loop and I fairly held my breath, for it is a daring bit of work. I am told that the aviator who performs this feat is a young man aged 19 and by name See. I should say he has no nerves, and handles a ‘plane beautifully.

Some hydroplane boats in charge of officers belonging to the R. N. A. S. have been whizzing about this afternoon and evening. They are like motor-boats in appearance, but seem to skim along the surface of the water, and at a tremendous speed. I understand they carry a 10″ torpedo, which is fired from the stern.

HMS Weymouth went up to Chatham for docking this evening.
