“Whilst in Archangel I met Lt. Commander Richardson, who was in hospital at the same time as myself. His language was as choice as ever, and some of his yarns very tall. He told me about a certain standard ship which was on her way out here loaded up with stores. She was held up by the ice in the White Sea, and was taking in four feet of water per hour. Ice-breakers had been rushed out to her relief, but it looks very like a hopeless business. Richardson tried to cheer me up by telling me that affairs at home were much worse than in Archangel! What a life!”
