January 31, 1942

Up at 0600.
Underway at 1300.
Passed the ruins of the five battleships.
Passed out of the channel escorted by 4 destroyers.
We were with two cargo carriers, the Caster and the John L. Lykins.
Two destroyers leave and our escort to San Diego will be the U.S.S. McDonough and U.S.S. Flusser.
Two destroyers drop back but sub contact was false.
Airplane spots submarine about 10 miles astern of us.
Turned in at 2100.
