May 20, 1942

We entrain with Carriers and leave Seaford at 5:30 a.m., arrive in Portsmouth at 10 a.m. go on ferry at 1 p.m. and arrive three miles west of Ryde on the Isle of Wight at 2 p.m. We are met by Tommy Johnson who guides us  to our harbour two miles north west of Newport. Harboured in a large wood – at present the South Saskatchewan Regiment is occupying some of our tents. Bill Hunt and I are in a tent next to RAP which is in our truck.
