It has been raining on and off for two days now. We haven’t done much in the matter of parades, but things look more to the point. Ammunition has been served out (150 rounds per man) and the blankets have been tied up ready for disembarkation.  Orders have come out that we are not to mention where we are, what our movements are likely to be, the discipline of troops, or the behaviour of any person, any criticisms, and in fact, nothing at all. Also no diaries are to be taken with us, as in the event of being captured by the enemy they might glean valuable information thereby. There is a French man-o-war in here built against the attack of aeroplanes. She is built turret fashion, being broad at the water line and narrow at the deck. The shells glance off the sides and she isn’t half the mark from above.
