wooden box - it was an old cigar box, I think.

I did not see what the French sailors did with

the gun. I do not know whether they took it with

them. They came at 7.30 in the evening. The

French had an interpreter who spoke Arabic. I am

the only person on board who knows Arabic. I

understand a little. When the interpreter told

us to go out. I understand it. He said "all the

crew to go out. We are going to sink the ship".

He asked us if we had any petroleum. They found

the bottle half full. They did not call attention

to any mark on the decks, not to the sand. They

 did not say that they found a smell of petroleum or

at any rate we did not understand it. We lit our

lamps for them to examine. We had only one lamp

lit on the ship it was in the bows - we  were sitting

in the bows after having eaten our meals. We had

no talk of buying any other gun or cartridges and

we did not do so. We had no talk about buying a

small boat. We only had one boat on board. It

was the one we took from Kyrenia.

Read over and found correct.
