Letters, diaries and photographs from World War II

Wednesday 16th May 1945

We sight the Rock of Gibraltar about 11am and get into position at 4.30. At least six big liners are waiting and numerous smaller ones and cargo.

At about six we are moved away from the big ships and put among the cargo ones. This leads me to assume that we are not going with them. It is a very pleasant day in the sunshine.
