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 entry for each day is a précis 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].

The Internet is of course invaluable to the modern researcher and I have provided hyperlinks to most of the ships, places and people included here. The following sites have been invaluable.

[Note: the log references numerous lighthouses in Japanese waters, but as the spelling of these is not always clear and it is very difficult to cross-reference them to modern lights, I have omitted some of them here. Keen students of early 20th century Japanese lights will have to search the originals. Todai, or toudai, is a lighthouse, shima (also sima and jima) means island, saki and misaki are cape and headland, wan is a bay and ko a harbour. Good luck! Ed.]
