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:

My notes appear in square brackets, [thus].

Most days contain routine entries such as rounds correct, usual routine completed, quarters, the time fires have been alight in the steam cutter, hands training, cleaning or painting and details of daily leave etc. I have omitted most of these, but occasionally transcribed every entry of a page to show the normal routine missed from the edited text.

I have not transcribed anchor bearings, or most of the sightings & bearings to landmarks, except where they help to provide details of routes & positions not provided by the noon locations.

For some days, HMS Yarmouth’s log keeper gives no position. In those cases I have estimated the position, using the description, courses & speeds in the log, where possible. Where this is the case I have written [Est] after the position. With acknowledgement to Google Earth.

Thanks to the moderators and crew of Naval-History.Net & oldWeather.org for help in deciphering & understanding the logs, for presenting the edited document & especially to Maikel for the Journey Plotter.
