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:

I found this interesting link to photographic album of HMS Kent and Captain Allen's diary covering the Battle of the Falklands - http://sylvielannes.com/FEV_album2/fev_1914-1918.htm.

This event led to a protest from the Chilean Government to Germany and England. The British Government answered promptly by sending apologies for this action of war in neutral Chilean waters.

According to http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=95119 the sum to be distributed was of £ 5 for each enemy killed during the action, which makes for the Nuernburg crew a sum of £ 1505 to be paid to the ship's company on board at that time. The King's Regulations of 1913 (pages 646 to 648) does not give information’s about how the share is to be divided.
