Report of Drifters off Cape Helles 21 January 1919

Report of Drifters off Cape Helles 21 January 1919

 

S.O. 9th Div of Drifters

D “Northesk” II

Cape Helles.

Jan 21/19

S.N.O. (H)

H.M.S. “Pelorus”

 

Submitted,

 

Enclosed I send detailed list of escorting vessels and the quantities of Fresh Meat desired twice weekly.

 

If these quantities could be sent down by a Drifter leaving Chanak – each quantity labelled – I would see they were at once delivered to each vessel.

 

At present Trawler “Farraday” is at Mudros but all other vessels are escorting.

 

Fresh vegetables – such as potatoes would be welcome when available.

 

One basket (140 lbs) would last a Drifter a fortnight & a Trawler approximately 9 days.

 

 

R.H. Palmer.

Lieut. R.N.V.R.

S.O. of Drifters.
