Letters, diaries and photographs from World War II

Saturday 28th April 1945

It’s going to be mainly officers on this trip and the accommodation is very cramped, no cabins, just decks filled with folding bunks. The GR’s that are on this ship are staff and seem to like the job. They get the same food and accommodation as us and pay for duties.

Note: GR’s = possibly Gurkha Regiment?
