As of 12 hours ago the Vigilance put to the stars, setting off on our voyage. I successfully collected the five “new” recruits for the Deathwatch to be delivered to the Jericho Reach. I say “new” with some irony. These brother-marines have each singly seen more battle than the senior staff combined at my schola.

Each marine arrived individually to the orbital shipyards above Fenksworld without incident. However, I have been asked to inform the Ordos Xenos and the Deathwatch that the Storm Spectres have suffered massive casualties recently and will need to suspend their oath beyond this last recruit.

Our hope that Fenksworld would be busy enough preparing Battlefleet Calixis to allow five members of the Adeptus Astartes to pass unnoticed was a foolish one. It would behoove us to remember that the Adeptus Astartes can rarely travel incognito, though I understand the Deathwatch offers advanced training in this area. We may want to consider pressing them to pass this knowledge on to each of their oath-brother chapters.

We are now off and I will update when we reach our destination at Watch Station Bellom. The Emperor Protects.
