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 task of editing this log has been greatly facilitated by the efforts of the volunteers who maintain websites packed with information on ships and personnel. https://www.wikipedia.org/ is of course invaluable, particularly strong on US Navy ships. http://www.clydesite.co.uk/ and http://www.tynebuiltships.co.uk/index.html have informed me on many vessels at a time when British shipyards provided most of the world’s shipping. http://historicalrfa.org has all we need to know about fleet auxiliaries, http://www.theshipslist.com is invaluable for passenger and cargo steamers and http://navypedia.org/ is the place to go for obscure warships of one hundred years ago. http://www.photoship.co.uk is a delight, http://www.dreadnoughtproject.org is the place for potted biographies of senior officers and http://www.geographic.org is the first port of call to find out where those ports are. Finally, where would we be without lighthouses and http://www.trinityhouse.co.uk, http://wlol.arlhs.com/ and https://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/lighthouse/index.htm are endlessly informative on this fascinating topic. To those responsible for these wonderful resources, heartfelt thanks and appreciation. All who are fascinated by vessels that no longer leave a wake on the ocean and sailors who have downed their last tot, are greatly in your debt.

The entry for each day is a precis of the actual log page, but occasionally a full day’s entry is recorded to convey the flavour of a quiet day in port. Those who wish to know when the libertymen were landed and what the weather was like on a particular day can of course refer to the actual page by clicking on the link above the date. The second line of each day’s entry is the position at noon in decimal format, either taken from the log or the known co-ordinates of a port. When neither of these is available, I have deduced feasible positions from other information with the help of Journey Plotter and these are marked (approx). Other positions in the log are given in degrees and minutes.

(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)
