There must be over one hundred ships in the convoy. We seem to be well escorted by destroyers. There is an aircraft carrier along. Planes continue to depart Topeka. The route varies for the different aircraft. In general the route to be followed takes us to Puerto Rico, thence to Trinidad, to various airfields in Brazil, thence to Dakar, thence to various airfields in Africa including Casablanca, Marrakech and Tindouf, thence to Chateaudunn or Tunis.
