1914 – September 29

Villeneuve 10.45 left at 12.45. Met a subaltern of the Horse-Guards who says that the Germans are out at last on the Sea*, perhaps at last we shall have at them. It makes one doubly anxious.

*The Battle of Heligoland Bight was the first sea battle of WW1, fought between the German and British navies on Sept 28th 1914, in the North Sea.
