The logbook naval events have been formatted but not edited. The quality and quantity of transcribed information therefore varies, and may include from 3 up to 6 versions of the same data depending on the number of volunteers working on the originals.

 

If a full account of any day is needed, just click on the link above that day. Groups of links refer to log book covers and introductory information; some may be blank

 

 

(note to editor – from August 1914 to January 1915, most of the pages appear to have been scanned in two halves – left and right, with the addition of scans of possibly ship loading sketches in some cases.  Editing will unfortunately require these pages to be opened to check the contents.)
