Arose at 4.30 A.M. to stand by in G.S.K. while men carried stores aboard.

Took troops aboard at noon; 400 members Quartermaster Corps and 600 members Aero Squadron.

Hoisted anchor 3 P.M. and pulled out in the stream. Anchored again 3.45 P.M.

Took our new 22 piece band aboard this date, but only brought 5 instruments with them; they claim to have been told that their instruments were aboard.

The steamer “Endeavor” pulled alongside at 10 P.M. with some heavy cable and 27 coils heavy rope for us; checked same and had men take aboard with the boom.

Turned in at 11 P.M.
