6th November 1916

At Sea. Much better night and I had the best night’s rest since leaving Liverpool. We were 135 miles from Halifax at noon by direct course, but altho’ we could have got in easily tonight, speed was slackened and we shall not arrive until early tomorrow morning.

Went to “Abandon Ship” Stations this evening for exercise, owing to being in danger zone I suppose.

Captain told men this evening that the gold would be transported on arrival, then coal ship and await further orders. I had a chat with the R. C. priest tonight. He seems to think we shall soon return to England again with troops. I sincerely hope not unless it results in our having to stop in home waters.

Clock put back 1 hour.
