The wind and sea were rising however, eventually on going down to the small pier, against each side of which were two or three lighters. The naval and military embarking officers hustled them on by sixes and sevens. The lighters got under way at 2.50am and a couple of hundred yards away the men boarded the Destroyer HMS Staunch. The Destroyer took men on board for a long time, and did not leave till 4am. Reached Imbros after 8am. There were no casualties in the evacuation.
