THE JOURNEY NORTH

Greenock, Jock and I taking it in turns to drive. It was a long and tiring journey, as we could, of course, only use masked headlights; at one point we drove straight across a"roundabout" which, fortunately, only had smooth grass in its centre once we had mounted the kerb.

Early on the morning of the 18th we arrived at Greenock and drove to the dock, where we had arranged to meet the launch that was to ferry us out to H.M.S. Forth, the submarine depot ship lying in the Holy Loch.
Here we ran up against a snag. I had visualised that there might be some difficulty in lowering the canister into the launch, so I had carefully said in the signal from D.N.I. arranging for our arrival that I would have "one, repeat one" package weighing over 400 lb. and requesting assistance in embarking it. In spite of that particularity, the signal had been read as if our total baggage weighed 400 lb. in several packages. As a result, we found ourselves faced with a
