Dec. 26 - Woke up in St. George's Channel. The destroyer still in our lead. Many ships now in sight. Anchored in the Mersey River about one p.m. Boats that came within hailing distance saluted and gave us a warm welcome. Shouting at us "Are we downhearted? NO!" Our ship was quarantined shortly after we anchored. This was Boxing Day in England.
