December 18 (Mon) 1944, Scapa Flow, Orkney

By yesterday afternoon, the gale had abated considerably & this forenoon, 6″ firing at BPT [Battle Practise Target] was carried out. The first few calibration rounds were rather wide of the target & were fired by the left gun in each turret. The actual shoot was half a dozen salvos & was not bad at all towards the end. Secured in berth A4 during the afternoon watch. Last night there was a display of Aurora Borealis in the Northern Sky.
