12 April 1917 – Sailing through storms

DIARY:  Bad rolling & high wind.  Steaming South on special course for Gibraltar.

It’s hard to know what James meant by a special course for Gibraltar, but with a ship full of ammunition and with no escort or convoy protection, they would have been very mindful of the danger of submarines.
