Not much of interest today. Sat in a conference held by the C.O. concerning coming strike. Got some sun this noon and a workout this afternoon. Played a game of deck tennis with Bill Martin. Beat him badly but he invited me over to his room for a battle of beer. My first unauthorised drink at sea. Conference tonight in ready room and to bed at 2200.
Feel free to add comments or to suggest corrections on errors that I made transcribing.
