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.

Editor’s notes:

The logs of HMS Suffolk transcribed below cover the period from February 1914, approximately five months prior to the outbreak of World War I, to October 1919, about one year after the Armistice. During this period the logs cover the following distinct operations:

February to early August 1914: Operations in the Caribbean during the conflict between Mexico and the USA during the Mexican Revolution.

August 1914 to August 1916: Patrolling off the east coast of the United States, principally off New York and Chesapeake Bay, with regular port calls at Halifax, Canada, and at Bermuda. This phase ended with HMS Suffolk being paid off at Portsmouth on August 25, 1916.

(August 26, 1916, to May 31, 1917: No logs available.)

June 1917 to January 1918: Transit from Plymouth to the Far East and operations based on Singapore and Hong Kong.

January 1918 to January 1919: Operations in the Russian Far East, primarily near Vladivostok.

January to late May 1919: Operations based on Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore and transit back to England, arriving at Plymouth on May 28.

Late May to October 31, 1919: Training ship at Devonport.

A number of points are relevant with regard to the log transcriptions:

Not all events in the logs have been transcribed. In particular, routine events of a regular nature (e.g. ‘Quarters’; reading of prayers) are rarely noted unless they form part of an entry which is otherwise of importance. Course and engine revolution changes are also rarely transcribed.

Events involving other vessels or where people are mentioned by name are usually transcribed.

Where an entire word or a part of a word cannot be interpreted, it is replaced by a tilde (‘~’). Where the spelling of a word is uncertain, this is noted by ‘[sp.]’ inserted after the relevant word.

Where possible, hyperlinks are provided for information about naval vessels and geographical locations. Hyperlinks have not been provided for merchant vessels due to the large numbers of such vessels encountered (particularly during patrolling off New York). A hyperlink to a vessel or location is provided when that vessel or feature is encountered for the first time or when it has not been encountered for a period of at least a few weeks.

Common abbreviations (e.g. ‘HMS’, ‘AB’, ‘CPO’) are not expanded. Less common abbreviations or contractions are generally transcribed in full (e.g. ‘Light Vessel’ for ‘L.V.’; ‘Telegraphist’ for ‘Tel.’) to enhance readability.
