From Canada to England

Corporal Cartwright describes his voyage over to England. Looming fog delays the ship from Halifax onward, and Cartwright remarks, “There are far too many men on this boat: you can hardly move anywhere at times.” His account is continued the following week. The fog has cleared, and the men are improving from their sea-sickness. The troops arrive safely on land from the voyage across the ‘Devil’s Hole’, the deepest part of the Atlantic and the danger zone in British home waters. Cartwright remarks proudly of the 25,000 Canadian troops already there, and the more that are to come.
