Wednesday 27th January 1937

At 8:30 we were signalling, on the drill deck when the “pipe” came, “Commander’s request men, fall in on the main deck!” 80% of the signalling class had to answer that “pipe!”

“… JS Dawson!” (Double up, crash!) ..Requests to be rated Ordinary Signalman”
“Recommended” “Rated” “Rated Ordinary Signalman! About turn – double – march!”

(Thud! Double off the deck) Then up top again to carry on with semaphore. What an impostor!
