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’s notes:

The second line of each day’s entry is the ship’s position at noon, taken from the log and converted into decimal format. When there is no entry and the ship is not moored in a known port, the noon position has been estimated by me from data in the log, using the Journey Plotter program that is used to create the maps. These are marked [approx]. Other positions in the log are given in the traditional format.

Vessels and places, when first encountered, have a hyperlink if one is available and I wish to acknowledge and thank the following sites, in no particular order.
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.clydesite.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://www.fofweb.com, http://atlantic-cable.com, http://uboat.net and http://www.red-duster.co.uk.
A picture equals a thousand words as we know and the ship photographs have been trawled from http://www.photoship.co.uk (where one can wander for weeks), http://www.mfa.org, http://www.bl.uk and https://www.flickr.com. Photos of the East Indies and China of the period have been found in http://hpc.vcea.net, http://hankou.virtualcities.fr, http://www.virtualshanghai.net, http://www.nas.gov.sg, http://remembersingapore.org and http://eresources.nlb.gov.sg. All fascinating.
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://www.ipernity.com, http://www.nblighthouse.com, http://wlol.arlhs.com, http://www.lightphotos.net, http://www.atlasobscura.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), http://www.findagrave.com, 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://www.negrettiandzambra.co.uk, http://readyayeready.com, http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz, http://findwords.info, http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk and http://global.britannica.com, all of whom provided a single piece for the jigsaw.
All of these sites are run by volunteers and without their splendid work we would all be poorer. Those of us fascinated by seamen who have downed their last tot and ships that no longer draw a wake across the ocean are greatly in your debt. We raise our caps and cheer you!
