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:

Items identified in [] and italics are added by the editor.

Re Latitude and Longitude. Actual latitude and longitude values are rare in HMS Mantis’ log, except for her journeys in 1919 and 1920. I have added estimated positions as described in the log, using modern digital maps of the area, where it is possible to identify the position.

Locations. Many locations mentioned in the logs cannot be found on modern maps or identified with certainty using the maps I have available. Where this is the case I have not attempted to give Latitude and Longitude by estimation from locations on days before and after. Many locations can be identified with current locations, because they have similar names listed on modern digital maps. Where this is the case I have identified the modern spelling at the first entry of that place name, but kept the spellings as used in the log. I have added the Latitude and Longitude of the location.
