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 Paul’s notes:

The position given on the second line of each day’s entry is the position at noon. This is taken from the logbook and expressed in the modern decimal format. When at anchor, the co-ordinates of the place are used. For days at sea when no co-ordinates are entered in the log, the position has been estimated by me from log entries, usually using the Journey Plotter program; these are marked [approx]. Positions in the log at other times are recorded in the “old fashioned” degrees and minutes.

Acknowledgements.
This edit and its hyperlinks would not be possible without the Internet and the sites, often kept going by amateurs in their own time and at their own expense, that carry the information on the ships, men, places and events of the time.
https://en.wikipedia.org is of course truly invaluable and please note that it is funded by voluntary donations. For places, http://www.geographic.org is excellent and I have sometimes used http://mapcarta.com.
For shipping lines http://www.theshipslist.com is the place to go and for merchant vessels I have used http://www.clydeships.co.uk, http://www.tynebuiltships.co.uk and http://www.teesbuiltships.co.uk for the bulk of the world’s ships, as well as http://www.wrecksite.eu. Useful Dutch sites are http://nimh-beeldbank.defensie.nl, http://www.studiegroep-zwp.nl [actually a philately site!], http://www.marhisdata.nl and http://www.helderline.nl. Other individual ships have been picked up by http://uboat.net, http://www.red-duster.co.uk and navsource.org.
Warship information, when not found in one of the above has been found in http://navypedia.org, http://www.battleships-cruisers.co.uk and http://www.navy.gov.au, while fleet auxiliaries are splendidly served by http://www.historicalrfa.org.
Information on the lighthouses, so important then, can be found on http://www.lighthousedigest.com, http://wlol.arlhs.com, and last, but definitely not least, the truly astonishing https://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/lighthouse/.
The memories of the people are preserved in http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk, http://dreadnoughtproject.org (good for senior officers), https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org, http://www.unithistories.com (actually WW2 but good for officers who served in both wars) and http://www.hkmemory.hk.
Finally, a grand miscellany: http://readyayeready.com, http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz, http://findwords.info and http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk, all of whom provided a single piece for the jigsaw. Thanks and apologies to those that I have missed.
To all these sites, their editors and their contributors, we are in your debt. On behalf of the sailors who have downed their last tot, we salute you.

Lat 1.26, Long 103.85

    In am: Surveyed chain cable and typhoon cable. 3 and 4 shackles transposed to 5 and 6 on chain cable*.

    In pm: Hands employed cleaning and painting chain locker.

* The anchor “cables” are chains, made up with “shackles” of cable each 12.5 fathoms (75’) in length joined together by links that can be opened (also confusingly known as shackles). When anchoring the most common scope of cable veered out will be 3 shackles or so and this section will get more wear rubbing against fairleads than others, hence the exchange with sections of cable that often remain in the chain locker. They don’t say so, but they will probably swap the starboard cable for the port, as naval vessels traditionally use the starboard anchor when only one is required.
