Actions of fleet auxiliaries announced

Vladivostok - The seaplane carrier Almaz (3,270 metric tons, 4 seaplanes) and five Izyslav class destroyers raised steam and left, proceeding north. The destroyers unloaded their complement of depth charges the previous night, and were each seen with a quantity of coal secured in their place. Their destination was announced as the far-north port of Anadyr.

Murmansk - The Seaplane carrier Orlitsa (2,916 metric tons, 5 seaplanes) and the fleet oiler Betelgeuse (9,897 metric tons) left port, laying a course eastward, for an unannounced destination. An unusual detail was that Betelgeuse left with only half a load of oil, but a good deal of coal in bags was seen being loaded before she left.
