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:

My notes in the logs appear in curly brackets, {thus}.

HMS Clio's Log Keepers frequently enter no latitude and longitude positions for many days at a time. In some of these cases I have estimated her position at noon using distances travelled and courses as written in the log. Clearly these are not necessarily accurate noon positions and I have indicated where this has been done by the word {Estimated} after the location. Acknowledgement to Google Earth.

Most days contain routine entries such as lit fires in steam cutter, hands training, cleaning or painting and details of daily leave etc. I have omitted most of these, but occasionally transcribed every entry of a page to show the normal routine missed from the edited text.

I have not transcribed anchor bearings except where they assist with the location of the anchorage, eg an anchor bearing to Loheiya Hill Fort is often the only indication that she is anchored at Loheiya.

The following log pages are not available for transcription/editing, 08/03/1916 - 09/03/1916, 20/01/1917 - 21/01/1917, 01/11/1917 - 31/12/1917, 28/08/1918 - 04/03/1919, 01/09/1919 - 03/11/1919
