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:

A source of research material on HMS Hood can be found at the HMS Hood Association – Battle Cruiser Hood web site – http://www.hmshood.com/.

Where I have been able to research Personnel, a ship, a place name, or other facts, I have placed underlined ‘links' in the narrative to help the reader find further research.

As Hood interacted with other ships I have tried to link to them for further research. I have linked most HMS to Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ship_names_of_the_Royal_Navy. Some of the HMS ships’ Logs are available at Royal Navy Ship Index where many are completed and edited, some are still awaiting edit.

‘Log reset miles– refers to the Patent Log – a rotored/propellered instrument towed behind the ship to measure distance travelled. Its ‘rotations' are frequently mentioned in the Logs as a means of determining speed. It would be read and reset at intervals to determine how far the ship had travelled during a period of time. ‘Bower' refers to the anchors carried at the bow of the ship.

Many measurements will be mentioned in the Logs such as ‘Cable, Fathom, Shackle, and Mile (Nautical Mile). Data can be found on the link: Imperial Measures of Length.

Clicking the blue links will show the daily ‘original ‘ Log sheet if further details are required.

Follow the link for a list of all 173 ships met by H.M.S. Hood in the period covered by the log-books, May 1923 to April 1925.

12:00mid: Set Anchor Watch


     [Editor’s Note: Hood has seven shackles of chain out, 525 feet of very heavy stuff on the floor, about half that available. The Hood had three anchors at the bow, each one weighing 9.5 (long) tons (21,280 lbs). The main anchor chains were made up of 1 8" links, which were 3 3/8" in diameter. There were two bower anchors (one either side) and one sheet anchor to starboard, very rarely used and in fact removed before WW2.]
