April 22nd, 1943

Land sighted – New Hebrides Islands.  Entered channel.  Many U.S. and British cruisers and destroyers in the harbor.  U.S.S. Enterprise in harbor and about 20-30 freighters and transports.  Refueled and Anchored.  Fifteen VF-11’s came aboard.  Sold my dagger for $35.00.  Went swimming over side of ship.  Anchored for night in harbor.  Beautiful moonlight, and little Dottie on my weary mind.
