Notes:

 

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

 

2. 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.

 

3. 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.

 


   

 

THE VOYAGES OF HMS WELLAND, 1913-1919
(more plots may follow in the text)

 

TO BE ADDED

 

(Maps prepared using Journey Plotter, developed by Maikel. The Plots can only be approximate. They are made by joining-up positions on successive days, and sometimes positions are not given. There will therefore be occasions when the ship appears to have travelled overland)
