11 May 1917 – In Moudros Harbour, Lemnos

James did not write anything for the next few days.  His diary is blank and so his next post will be on Monday 15 May.

Having sailed from Plymouth on 9 April, via Gibraltar, Malta and Crete, he has finally arrived at his destination of Moudros Harbour, on the island of Lemnos.  All the ammunition (torpedoes, sea mines, etc)  can be unloaded from HMS Lady Cory-Wright.

He will stay in this port for some time, eventually getting back to England on 24 July 1917 – a year to the day since he set off from Middleton Junction to join the Navy.
