I sounded "Action!" and in atiout Ml hour we apoCted some smoke. If. ' ' '--4 it was the Germans, and we put on speed. So did they. They did not want to meet US, but we got nearer to them, and'then they found they had to fight. Their ilrst shot fell very short, but our first shot pitched right by the side of them. In about half an hour we were as busy as bees. ' The signal came down to us: "One of' their ships on fire." Then 'about half an hour, after: "Second ship on fire,'' and we gave a cheer. We were engaging them off the port side, and. our-big gtmswere giving them "soc'ka,'' but they, had- some gcod guifs as' W9ll�-l A'lot,of; ;t}ieir'shots went righfoT.jer us, �o.^ey must have had some lon^-rtuige guns.

They did work hard, but they did it with a gcod heart, and I believe at one time our ship was engaging three of the enemy's ships. Four Eenemy Ships on Fire Four of their shins were on fire, but they could still keep on firing, and 1 ' believe one or two of our poor chaps ; who got on deck to have a look at ; them did not live long. I myself was j I very anxious to go on deck and have ! a look, but I am glad I did not. We must think ourselves lucky not to have lost more. Some of our marines lest almost all their kit. I myself only got mine wet. A shell burst i in our mess and most of our cooking j utensils are missing. The next table I to ours is abso'iuteiy gone, also one of j our stoves. ! We buried five of our crew at sea ; today; I tolled the bell, and we all  mustered on the quarter-dack. Our ' chaplain read the burial service, and i the poor chaps went over the side to the last resting place out of sight of ; any land. The other dead are being taken ashore. "On Deck to See the Ship Sink" To tell you the real truth, we were all pleased to get Into action, but the last ten minutes of it mads me wish It would end. ' A message came down from the deck above: "'AH hands on deck to see the enemy's ship sink," and In less than five minutes after we could see nothing of her. and our destroyers drew near to pick up survivors. ^ Some of the enemy's ships got away from us, but they were on fire, and almost sinking. We don't think that they could get back to harbor. Our ship at one time stood all the brunt of their firing, as we sheltered the leading ship of our line 'when she got winged. Still, thank goodness for everything, we are still alive and happy. I don't think they will want to meet us again. Wien the Blucher sank there was no otter big ship in sight, only ourselves, and some destroyers. self extremely popular with the general public, who, while congratulating him on his appointment, will sincerely regret his departure.
