When we come out from there and we had to come out we had to come out in a hurry and we were on a minelayer and if you're sick you go out where they're laying on the deck tied like that with your feet across and you didn't have time to be seasick or anything.

There was only one raid on it because they watched it pretty closely and that's why they zig zagged and everything and being a minelayer she could move. So, we got back to Egypt and from there we went up to Syria.
