26th May 1917

At sea. Our pneumonia case seems better today and much brighter.

A chart showing the course the ship will take across the Atlantic, the German War Zone, and where the destroyer-escort should meet us on June 6th has been placed on the board. The point where we meet the destroyers is a short distance inside the danger zone and lies in a line with Lands End and in a longitudinal point with the Azores.

The distance we have travelled per the chart looks very insignificant and has caused much growling. We have travelled, and are now travelling, north-east but will turn more northerly when about in the same longitude as the Great Banks. We then steam in a semi-circle (The Great Circle) until we come to the German War Zone. The point where we meet the destroyers is about 48 hours run from Plymouth.
