History of the 1st HMS Kelantan Deep-Sea Rover Scout Crew
SATURDAY, 27th OCTOBER, 1945
Today we were presented with a canoe by the Commanding Officer of H.M.S. “SPRINGDALE”, and since she was lying in the Basin and we on the West Wall, no time was lost in getting it round to our ship. We placed it on our well-deck and gave it a good look over – it certainly looks a good craft and we can hardly wait to try her out.
I must see about transport tomorrow so that we may try her out. Fred could get the truck right alongside us. I must also see our First Lieutenant for a couple of new paddles.
