Still here, sleeping in a tent. The vehicles have gone to the docks. I believe we go in buses later. Nothing very exciting. At 6 p.m. we load in buses and drove ten miles to dock side, where we loaded on board MTS 132 – a Victory ship. On board is 6th Can. F.D.S., 13th British F.D.S. commanded by a Scottie from Edinburgh named Major McLaren, 211 British Fld. Amb. Col. Logan, 2nd Crops H.Q. (Tactical) and one Co. of Manchester Regiment. Our two ambulances are on deck, so all Officers are living in them. Mac, Dibb, Hans, Ronnie, and I are in one and Howard Ellis, Andy Anderson, Padre Walker, and Paul Carson in the other.
