25 October 1944
This morning loading and unloading continued and another barge load of troops was put aboard. About 3:00 PM we pulled out of Noumea harbor and headed for Australia. Spent the afternoon playing poker with the result of $1.90 to the good. However, after chow we got started again and after 4 hours of play I was even for the day. However in 15 minutes I dropped $4. Even 25 cent limit poker can be rough at times. Probably will try again tomorrow.
