Oct 24, 1942 – Saturday

During the night we moved out in to the bay.  At 10:30 we set sail for where I don’t know.  There are only 15 ships in the convoy but will soon be getting larger.  By 2:30pm we had picked up 8 more ships, bringing the total up to 23 ships.  Just before dark, there were 32 ships in the convoy.  We didn’t do a thing but lay around. Oh yes! We had the job of handing out the life belts.
