Wednesday 10th March 1943

Well '   Yer I be' in my bunk but not in bed, all my clothes on and everything I want to take with me- handy. There was nothing yesterday, just the usual routine. The old Carrier dodging around and planes flying on and off her.

Well, I had my lay in this morning, even then I did not want to get up but had to, turn to.

Saw another plane today. I shall be about a week out in my guess as to when we shall get there. And it will mean dry dock for the ship is absolutely falling to pieces. Our fresh water tanks are leaking now into the sea. Soon we shall be reduced to our ration of fresh water.

My toe nails are hurting a lot, I do wish I had some scissors.
