Very hot and sticky with wind aft and a hot night. I am not yet in my cotton clothes. Nothing doing on board, just a peaceful siesta. At Aden I hope we will get news of a naval victory in the North Sea*. The old war is very tiresome, but it does good and the longer it lasts the better.
* This possibly turned out to be the Battle of Jutland, which commenced on 31st May 1915.
