November 22, 1918
Excerpts from the diary of Green Howards soldier, Stanley Harrison, spanning Armistice day 1918 to the first peacetime Christmas for four years.
Nov. 22nd. Reveille 5 a.m. Much quieter on new boat. Still same view – the open sea. Travelling about 18 knots. Fine weather. Queues all round ship for canteen. Emergency alarm at 2 o’clock. Canteen queue had to disperse. Little doing all day except gossiping and tramping the decks.
