19 April 1917 – Went ashore at Gibraltar

DIARY: Painted and varnished W/T cabin with assistance of Mr Taylor Smith and Haigh. PM went ashore on duty to Windmill Hill for call sign. The English part of the town of Gib is very hilly and is built in tiers.  Most of houses are flat roofed and brown in colour.  The hawkers of fruit carry their fruit around on backs of donkeys.  Mostly mules are used in place of horses.  Windmill Hill overlooking the whole sea and bay and a splendid view of the surrounding places can be obtained from here.
