We pulled into Oran, Algeria and were there for several days.  I had drawn Shore Patrol Duty and the French Foreign Legion came to the ship to take us to the Shore Patrol Headquarters.  Due to the dangerous conditions, we were ordered to stay in groups of no less than 4 at all times.  I had drawn Shore Patrol before in many different parts of the world, but this was one of the scariest experiences of my life.  I was never so glad to get back aboard ship.
