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 Paul’s notes:

HMS Moorhen was exclusively a river gunboat and so the logs contain a great number of place names and details of the day’s navigation, but they do not give Latitude and Longitude positions at noon as sea-going vessels do. When Moorhen is in a known place, it is of course possible to give a very accurate position, but when she is on the move, the noon position has had to be estimated from the details given; when this has been done, such positions are marked [approx].

Place names and the way in which they are translated have of course changed greatly over the years and even within the logs, a number of variations at the time were recorded. I have adopted the course of standardising all entries to the most common variant, eg Kong Mun has been used even when the log entry refers to Kongmun, Kong Moon etc.

Examples of place names with their modern equivalents.
Canton (Guangzhou)
Kong Mun (Jiangmen)
Kwei Hsien (Guigang)
Luk Po (Lupuzhen)
Sailam Channel (Jiya waterway)
Saiwan Channel (Shawan waterway)
Sam Shui (Sanshui)
Shameen (Shamian I.)
Shui Hing (Zhaoqing)
Sun Chow (Guiping)
Tai Shan (Dachan I.)
Tak Hing (Deqing)
Tiger I. (Dahu)
Tsing Yuen (Qingyuan)
West River (Xi River)
Wuchow (Wuzhou)
Yin Tak (Yingde)

The courses of the various waterways covered by Moorhen have often changed in the past 100 years, particularly in the Pearl Delta: then almost entirely agricultural, now the largest industrial/urban conurbation in the world. So, in the maps, I have adopted the convention of keeping the estimated positions within the modern boundaries of the rivers, to avoid the vessel being shown on dry land.

There is a splendid series of US Army maps of China made in the 1950s for those of you who wish to view the places in more detail. I found them invaluable.

Also of interest is this period chart of the lower Pearl River.

A handbook to the West River (pdf file) has many photographs and an excellent sketch map of the river on P. 74. Be aware that there is a gruesome shot of a pirate being beheaded at Wuchow!

10.00pm: Pipe down.

*The reference to leaving ‘Camber’ at 12.20pm is not a typo. The name is used several times in these logs. It is a reference to a particular dock at Hong Kong. There is a 1907 photograph described as being “a view over the British Military hospital and Naval Yards” at Gwulo: Old Hong Kong. It is the editor’s reading of the text on this page that the Camber is the dock covered by the letter ‘O’ in the watermark on this image.

**The reference to ‘bank fires’ at 9.00pm is about the practice of pulling together a fire then covering it in ash to keep out the air. A fire treated in this way will quietly smoulder for many hours. The fire can then be quickly relit by spreading the banked fire, opening any dampers so as to not impede the air flow over the fire, and applying new fuel on top of the glowing embers.

29 July 1918

An interesting day.

Moorhen sights the USS Pampanga for the first time. The official record says of the USS Pampanga at this time that her duties included “investigating Chinese political conditions and offering assistance to Americans in danger or need” and that “she cruised the West River to Canton and beyond protecting American interests, especially in the period of heavy unrest in the middle 1920’s, and made frequent visits to Hong Kong, Swatow, and the other ports of the area”. Naval History and Heritage Command: Pampanga

At 5.30pm a storm struck with force 6 winds and Moorhen had to drop a second anchor to ensure that she was secure.

The official record states that Pampanga’s mission is essentially intelligence gathering – see note on July 29, 1918 entry. Official visits (complete with cocked hat and sword!), as well as being demanded by custom and courtesy, were a very important source of information exchange. The Captains of China gunboats, in the days of limited communications with their senior officers, had a great deal of autonomy and the latest intelligence was priceless.

There is something reassuring about those logs that finish with the words “Hands to tea”. It is so colonial English! These men may be serving in a far flung colony but their day is still ruled by the traditions of home. You might almost think that when the log reads “Hands painting ship” the hands have their watercolours and camel hair brushes out to create delicate images of their ship in a gentle landscape. The reality is of course that they are doing the traditional military thing of slapping layers of paint on any static object in sight that is not either routinely scrubbed or polished.

Today Moorhen sets off for Wuchow but the details of her route are not recorded in this copy of the log for some reason. I have arbitrarily assigned her a route and timings that are broadly representative of a usual journey from Hong Kong to Wuchow, but “approx” should perhaps read “very approx”. We do at least know when she leaves Hong Kong and when she arrives at Wuchow, but there is no way to find where she moors each night.
