" In wartime, overseas travel is restricted. In 1941, I accepted a teaching position in Sumatra. My travel options were limited to what was available.
My mother accompanied me to Greenock, Scotland, my port of embarkation. In wartime, all orders were sealed and opened by the Captain once the ship was underway. Although our destination was surmised, the route was unknown.
I kept a diary and sent home pages, instead of letters. My mother kept the pages, some just scraps as we cut pages to reduce weight. The diary tells the story of my voyage and my time in Sumatra.
