8th July 1917

At sea. Captain went “Rounds”. Went to Morning Service. Wind has got around to North East and a “choppy” sea is running. It is much colder and we have changed into No. 8’s – white trousers and blue coats.

14 Sick today, 3 Bed cases.

Went to Evening Service.

A raider has been sighted north of our course. She is a four-masted sailing and motor vessel.

A very fine specimen of a flying fish flew inboard tonight and was secured by a P. O.  The body, in appearance and colour, is like a mackerel, and two large fin-wings are situated behind the head.
