New Zealanders

Posted: November 13, 2014 by saraherhodes in 1914

This morning the New Zealand fleet passed through our lines.  I think they were going ahead to coal and water.

My hammock is always tied to a wire rope, acting as the ridge rope of the for’ard awning.  This rope is fastened to the rail of the promenade deck, and has gradually bent the iron stanchion out.

Last night when everyone had crawled in, this post gave a tremendous crack, instantly about thirty of the crowd deserted their hammocks in a hurry – it frightened the life out of them.

Our letters have to be posted on board tomorrow night.  They are being taken to Colombo by the “Orvieto”.  I am posting this, it may be delayed but you will get it sooner than you would if I waited until we reach England.
