During passage from Taranto to Mudros Oct 24th to Nov 4th 1918, my Division was ordered to tow two Tugs (A.S.C., T.) Nos 3 & 18.

 

Owing to bad weather the crews were taken off Tugs and accommodated on Drifters, also victualled.

 

It was understood that the Captain of H.M.S. “Queen” was arranging for cost of victualling these men (1/8 per man per day) to be credited to the Drifters and the list of vessels accommodating & the number of men was handed in before leaving.

 

I have been asked by the Skippers whether the amounts were credited to their Victualling accounts & should be grateful if you could inform me.

 

For information I give herewith the particulars of Tugs towed & how the crew were accommodated.
