One morning during fire drill a Sgt. was either thrown or fell over board. We couldn’t stop for him but I heard later the English sent a flying boat out after him. We never did find out the truth about it. We saw an English plane circle our boat this evening our 7th day out. It went around several times & then disappeared. After that we saw them regular & acted as escorts for us. It was a good sight to see. Also saw another boat pass ours in the distance. It was lots of fun watching the porpoises play along beside our boat.
