Friday 8th October 1954

Everyone looked very dull and ordinary in English cold weather clothes, and quite different from what they had been looking in sun-tops and fantastic Madeira hats.

We had to pack early and have our luggage out of the cabins by 10:30 which was an awful nuisance as we were not disembarking till next morning. We put into Falmouth for refuelling about 19:00.

There was a grand farewell dance and party in the evening which went on till well after midnight, and I staggered into my bunk well after 01:00.
