Excerpt from The Dover Patrol, 1915-1917, Vol. 2

During the dark periods of the month - that was during the first and last quarters Of the moon - the majority of the division at rest anchored for the night in the Downs, unless the weather was such that a raid was impossible. This was by no means all joy, as, with a wind of any strength, in any quarter, except from w.s.w. Through north, to a sea set into the anchorage; and, as the destroyers usually rode to the tide, they were apt to roll badly, so that a night''s rest was more nominal than real. The captains, moreover, in the Downs usually preferred to sleep in their charthouse. I tried to dissuade them from doing this, since there was always time for them to be called before the engines could move and the cable he slipped; but, at the same time, it was easy to appreciate their point of view.
