4th June 1917

At sea. This morning we were 677 miles from our rendezvous. Increased speed a little during last night and all the ships are zig-zagging as we are nearing the German War Zone.

Went to “Abandon Ship” Stations tonight. Extraordinary precautions are being taken this trip, and it is enough to make one feel “nervy” but I fail to see whether the danger is any greater than used to be the case in the North Sea when we were there.

Ship is rolling heavily due to her getting light I suppose through lack of coal.
