25 April 1917 – Goes ashore in Valletta, Malta

DIARY: Sighted coast of Sicily about 8 am.  Sent W/T message to Malta arrived Malta at 5pm and entered Grand Harbour.  Went ashore in Valetta, and had a look round town.  Goats provide all milk for island and are driven around and milked as people want milk.  Most of them have bells round necks.  Go ashore in ?.  The Maltese costume is very picturesque & the women wearing a head dress similar to that worn by nuns.
