…all directions one could see light cruisers and torpedo boat destroyers, steaming to and fro in the Channel.
Monday, December 7, 1914
Reached Plymouth in a heavy sea and a drizzling rain after breakfast and remained there nearly all day.
Tuesday-Thursday, December 8-17, 1914
On the way to Port Said. Nothing of special interest occurred. Lay off Gibraltar a day and a half; it being a neutral I was not allowed to go ashore. After entering the Straits I saw a long line of empty transports proceeding toward England. These were the ships that have brought the Australian Contingent to Egypt. In the inner harbor at Gibraltar was lying The “Sidney” [sic], the Australian Cruiser which had sunk the “Emden”.
On the 17th as we were nearing Egypt we heard of the raid on Scarborough and later that the English had declared a protectorate over Egypt and had deposed the Khedive.
