Beryl Daley.

Interviewed by Eve Klein on 15th April 2002

Beryl Daley. We were 11 and a half weeks zig-zagging across the oceans of the world, because we zig-zagged. We left in convoy and the convoy went from Liverpool halfway across the Atlantic, and the biggest portion went on to the North American continent, and then we turned down mid-Atlantic, zig zagging all the way, especially after the Naval convoy had left us, you see. We came into the African Coast, Sierra Leone – I can remember the place – anyway, just for water, I imagine. We went out to the mid-Atlantic again and came down into Cape Town. We were 13 and half weeks getting to Australia.
