3 May 1917 – Arrives in Crete

DIARY: Came in sight of Island of Crete at 8am.  Entered Suda bay at 9.30 am and dropped anchor.  Skipper went ashore for orders. Crete is a mountainous island as are all the numerous islands in the Greek archipelago. Cania is chief town, then Suda comes next.  Left Suda at 7pm for Moudros.
