September 18, 1943 – Saturday

We were woken up at 10:30 P.M. last night and went down to load on. I got aboard about 1:00 A.M. we spent the rest of the day in the chamber. This is a British ship taking us over and it is also the flag ship. It is LST #415. We eat our own chow and our own cooks are doing the cooking. We were supposed to leave this afternoon but we didn’t. Maybe we will leave tonight.Palermo Stamione Centrali
