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.

12.20 pm: Sailed H.M.S. Topaze

4.0 pm: Evening Quarters.


Loss of the pre-Dreadnought battleship BENEDETTO BRIN


As soon as the explosion was heard many boats from nearby French, British and Italian ships arrived at the scene of the accident. The injured were transported by tugs to the sick bays of the other ships anchored in harbour and to the local hospital. 456 men of her complement of 943 died. Of the dead 369 were beyond recognition or missing.


Their funeral took place the next day at the local cemetery.


Teodore Andriani wrote in his book La base navale di Brindisi durante la grande Guerra, 1993 (Brindisi naval base during the great war) the testimony of Fausto Leva, Italian naval officer: The explosion’s power was such that the steel mass from stern turret of 305 mm cannon was hurled at a height half of the smoke column and crashed in the water on the ship’s left side.


By expanding sideways the explosion also caused heavy damage to ships anchored near by: Guilio Cesare, the Dante Alighieri, the Leonardo Da Vinci, the Nino Bixio, the Emanuele Filiberto, the Saint Bon and the Regina Margherita.


Four different inquiries were made on the explosion of the Benedetto Brin, one by the military commander of Brindisi, another by the commander from the department, one by the squadron commander and also one by the government. The results did not give any conclusion on what occurred and they were not published for not giving advantages to the enemy. But it was suggested at high government spheres that the explosion might have been caused by the unlucky position of the armoury and the poor ventilation and refrigeration of the same, which has been reported by the captain of the Benedetto Brin in 1914 but not taken into account by the government. This led to an announced tragedy: The engine room heat might have caused the ignition of ballistite (a mixture of nitrocellulose and nitroglycerine), which, in a chain reaction, led to the explosion of the other explosives. But the official position was that it was sabotage.


The ship’s bell was salvaged during the works of dredging in the harbour and is now displayed at the sacred chapel of the Monument to the Seaman.


Note: A number of other Allied ships were lost in World War 1 from internal explosions including British dreadnought VANGUARD and battleship BULWARK. At the time, sabotage was also suspected, but this was not the case. The loss of BENEDETTO BRIN is still attributed to Austrian sabotage, even in more recent publications.

10.30 am: Ship visited by King Neptune and Court on crossing the line Initiated candidates into the Misteries of the Deep


This ceremony was installed a few centuries earlier when Portuguese and Spanish vessels crossed the line. Sailers who have crossed the equator are called Shellbacks, the others, Pollywogs. As far as I know the complete ship’s company assisted to the ceremony where the candidates were shaved, pushed into dark water and other niceties. Every man who crossed the line received a certificate signed by King Neptune and his secretary Cancer.

It surprised me when I first transcribed this page why while en route to Rio de Janeiro H.M.S. Brisol suddenly returned to Bahia without specific reason. I made some research and found the answer:


The clue was given in the article Revisiting the Spanish Flu: the 1918 influenza pandemic in Rio de Janeiro by Adriana Da Coasta Goulart, Master in Social History from Universidade Federal Fluminense Rio de Janeiro Brazil. It describes the chaos in the city and as it took some time for the government to react, the death toll rose from September to Octoberby a factor of 2000 per cent. It was only on October 3 that some measures were taken, but the disease already made its deadly spread. October 18 the health minister had to resigned and his successor put in force quarantine and isolation for ships calling or at Rio de Janeiro. Therefore I deduced that this was the cause why H.M.S. Bristol returned to Bahia and was for the time being spared from the effects of that influenza.

It is to be noted that she called to Rio Janeiro late September when the flu was at its high but somehow nobody contracted it.
