Here is an example of what your journal might
look like May 13, 1897 Today we set sail from
London in the HMS Fearless. We are going to
Egypt first, through the Mediterranean.
Lieutenant Winchester seems to be a very
accommodating and knowledgeable captain. Of
course, I am the niece of the Queen so he has to

little sloop and we should be near the Strait of
Gibraltar in about a week, if the weather

viceroy gave me a Maltese cross and a beautiful
pin of a Maltese falcon to give to you to
celebrate your Diamond jubilee. May 26, 1897 I
can see why we have this island in our empire.

report that the base looked well kept after and
that the Admiral in charge was impressive. I do

sailors away from home at this base happy. On to
