Armed Merchant Cruiser, mercantile conversion

 

Pendant No. M.53 (on coming into service). Built 1905, 19687grt, 18kts. Armament: 8-4.7 in. In service 2.8.14-22.9.16. Of over 60 commissioned AMC's employed on patrol and later convoy protection, 33 served with 10th CS on Northern Patrol. (British Warships 1914-1919)

Eleanor Williams, one of the original transcribers,  has a personal interest  in HMS Caronia - "My great-grandfather was chef aboard Caronia, during both her military and civil years. He went on to be chef aboard most of Cunard's 'big name' liners, and was awarded the OBE for his work on the two Queens during the Second World War. He finished his career as executive chef of the line - so the crew of Caronia were definitely getting some good grub while they were on board! I have quite a lot of photographs of her and her crew (following) that he took."

Notes:

 

1. The logbook naval events have been formatted but not edited. The quality and quantity of transcribed information therefore varies, and may include from 3 up to 6 versions of the same data depending on the number of volunteers working on the originals.

 

2. Latitude/longitude, including for days in port, were computed by the climate science project as being the most representative location for each day. As such, they typically differ by varying amounts from the locations recorded in the log pages. Refer to the log scan pages for the positions as originally recorded.

 

3. 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.

 

(Note to Editor - some log files are duplicated. Most have been checked and the duplications deleted, but others might remain)

(more plots may follow in the text)

 

TO BE ADDED

 

(Maps prepared using Journey Plotter, developed by Maikel. The Plots can only be approximate. They are made by joining-up positions on successive days, and sometimes positions are not given. There will therefore be occasions when the ship appears to have travelled overland)
