HMS Tamar, Hong Kong, 7.30pm: Lt/Cdr Echlin (retd) under arrest for improper & insubordinate signal to Commodore http://www.naval-history.net/OWShips-WW1-80-HMS_Tamar.htm

[Reply on Twitter suggests signal was made to 'men', rather than 'me' and signed by Commodore. Possible. ;)]

Today we have the complete, edited logs of HMS Highflyer, 1913-18, 1920-21.
Editor Pat has added the logs from 1913-1917 to those already published. Thanks Pat!
I supplied the navigation edit for 1913-1917 and new and updated maps for the whole period (for uniformity) were supplied by Maikel.
Another one done.  :)
