24th July 1942 Got picked up. By HMS Ayrshire, knew the Navy wouldn’t forget us. She transferred us to the Troubadour. It was her crew who used tanks as anti-aircraft, I wasn’t seeing things. It’s been cat and mouse ever since, hiding in fog, sailing when the weather gets bad. I can see the port now, bombers everywhere, fire, guns, looks like hell. Hope we make it.
