Arrives at work for the 3rd day.
Issues facing the navy
Blockade of Crete
sink all vessels leaving or arriving on the island.
Those without express permission
Orders from a Konteradmiral
Personally is to oversee the landings at Crete
Carl places a report on the desk
After-action of U-17
Kapitänleutnant Hans Walther commanding
Sank an Allied transport Albatross leaving Crete (first that has left)
submerged to escape
Suddenly whole crew sank into a coma
Unwakable
Walther had to steer the ship away
Crew came too after 20 minutes of sailing
All had horrible scarring nightmares
Many haven’t spoken since
Visit Walther

Mentions hither-too unknown sailor who went crazy.
Sailor X assaulted an officer screaming that they were coming to get him.

The Dream
Walking in a field
Vague feeling of familiarity
Like you’ve been here before
Field changes as walking
Rain starts
Ground turns to mud
Explosions
Particularly large explosion
White glowing albatross emerges and flies away
Have to chase it
It has the answers that you seek
Flies to the beach
Out over the water.
Look around see others there.
Meeting
Generally productive
No one seemed interested in meeting each other
Smoke appeared on the horizon
Everyone seemed apprehensive
Back away.
Jeff’s Friend didn’t
Eaten alive by the reddish fog
Ran inland
Fog pursues them to top of the mountain where they wake up

Sorry if I’ve missed anything or added anything. From now on I’ll be taking thorough notes.
