Tuesday (17 April 1917)

Now having the hob-nails drawn from our boots, as the wet decks keep our deck shoes wet through and colds are prevalent.  Freezing cold salt shower this morning.  It was refreshing, but you can’t get clean in it.  Tonight or tomorrow we should reach the turning point of our voyage (Cape Horn).  Great fun this afternoon learning a Haka from the Maoris.
