Notes:

1. Latitude/longitude, including for days in port, show representative decimal positions for each day, as calculated by the Old Weather project's analysis program. As such, they differ by varying amounts from the positions recorded, usually at noon, in the log pages. In addition, some latitudes/longitudes have been amended in edited logs for errors in the logs, for errors in identifying locations by the analysis program, or simply for greater accuracy. In all cases, refer to the log-page scans for the positions as originally recorded. Not all log pages contain this information and the ships' positions have therefore often been estimated.

2. Full account of any day is available by clicking on the link above that day. Groups of links refer to log book covers and introductory information; some may be blank.

From this date until the end of September, the number on the sick list increases substantially. This is most likely the second outbreak of the ‘Spanish flu’, the first outbreak of which afflicted the crew of HMS Glory in late April – early May, 1918. It is also possible that AB Woodriffe, who died of bronchial pneumonia on 15 September, was an early fatality of this phase of the flu. The majority of the fatalities from this wave of influenza occurred between early October and early November; a number of these fatalities were crewmen from other vessels.
