Notes:

 

1. Latitude/longitude, including for days in port, were computed by the climate science project as being the most representative location for each day. As such, they typically differ by varying amounts from the locations recorded in the log pages. Refer to the log scan pages for the positions as originally recorded.

 

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 NOTE: The first day of each month is transcribed in full, as a way of giving a picture of daily life on board ship as well as the specific events of the day.

He had a long career in the navy, joining in 1903, and ultimately becoming a Rear Admiral. He died in 1967.)
