“About 3 p.m. on the 10th we sighted the Shetland Islands, and a great cheer went up from a group of us on deck. The cheering attracted the attention of the weak ones down below, and soon we were joined by a lot of green and pale-faced ones. It was great to see land again. That night there was tremendous rejoicing on board. We had a rousing sing-song at which a Russian lady sang beautifully.”

Scotland is sighted!
