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 research for this edit and the hyperlinks contained therein would not be possible without the numerous websites maintained by enthusiasts, often at their own expense. All of these welcome small donations to assist their survival. I would like to thank the editors and contributors to all of the following, as well as those that I have inadvertently omitted to mention, to whom I apologise profusely.

Those of us who are fascinated by the ships that no longer leave a wake on the ocean and the sailors who have downed their last tot are greatly indebted to all of you. Thank you.

When ships are first encountered I have provided a hyperlink if the ship can be positively identified and a link is available. Many ships here, particularly Chinese vessels, both naval and merchant, do not fall into either category and I have not listed these. RN logkeepers are notoriously bad spellers and the system used to transliterate Chinese names has also changed since then, so a positive identification is often not possible.

Each day’s entry is a precis, with routine events usually omitted, but on the first of each month a full transcript is provided, to give the full flavour of naval life. Readers can of course click on the link above each day to view the original.

* The entire ship’s company is drawn up on deck and each hand in turn steps up, salutes the Captain and states his rating, qualifications and good conduct badges. The muster roll and ship’s disciplinary record are checked and the man salutes again and returns to his division. The main purpose of this is to allow the Captain to put a name to the face, as even in a small ship there will be some hands that he never sees in the normal run of things.
