Ice Hunting / Cold War Group: Westwind - Where was this ship?
« on: June 24, 2017, 01:48:04 am »
For this set of records we need very simple information for a first pass.

Tracking Arctic journeys:
We need to know which log books contain journeys to the Arctic, in the Arctic, or from the Arctic, including, unusually, those made during winter months.
Kevin has suggested that we consider anything beyond 55 N as being in the Arctic. However, it appears that 45 N may be a better choice for the Atlantic; please use that for now.

Purpose:
Our long-range goal is to map the edge of the Arctic ice both in the Atlantic and in the Pacific.
Our short-range goal is to locate the useful log books so that we can go back for more details.
Kevin has asked if we can break the work down in this way.

Ship's logs:
Here sometimes one block oflogs contains several months. You don't need to sign up for the whole block. Just specify the month or months that you want. Please report the location on a monthly basis.

Other sources:
You can also look through these references to see if a list of the journeys has already been transcribed:
Westwind (WAG/ WAGB-281) CG Historian and Old Weather-NHN from 1/1/1951 to 3/31/1956

Details to report:
1) The year, the months when your ship was on a journey to the Arctic, in the Arctic, or on its way home from the Arctic, and whether it was in the Atlantic or Pacific.
2) If your log has a page specifying the journeys or you found a list elsewhere, please report that finding.
3) There is no need to record the presence or absence of ice.

Below is the list of logs.
Pop a note in this topic to offer to take a set of logs, and then post your results in this topic as well.

It's as simple as that at this stage. Thank you.

Ice Hunting / Cold War Group: Staten Island - Where was this ship?

Our short-range goal is to locate the useful log books so that we can go back for more details.
Kevin has asked if we can break the work down in this way.

Ship's logs:
Note that in some cases the Deck Log -- Title Page or a similar page will tell you where the ship started and finished. Sometimes that will give you sufficient information. However, in this case, all you can see that the ship was not in the Arctic at the beginning of the month and it ended the month "ENROUTE." You need to look at the last page. The positions there tell you that the ship finished the month in the Arctic (by the definition above).

Other sources:
You can also look through these references to see if a list of the journeys has already been transcribed:
Staten Island DANFS and Old Weather-NHN from 4/1/1952 to 12/31/1955.

Details to report:
1) The year, the months when your ship was on a journey to the Arctic, in the Arctic, or on its way home from the Arctic, and whether it was in the Atlantic or Pacific.
2) If your log has a page specifying the journeys or you found a list elsewhere, please report that finding.
3) There is no need to record the presence or absence of ice.

Another one from Atka: 1952-01-01
Here we lie in seven fathoms of water,
Moored to the North Jetty pier,
Which is in South Boston Annex
At Boston Naval Shipyard here.

On the port side are six cables
Lines one and six are made of wire.
The other lines are six-inch fiber,
All six are doubled for weather dire.

To the starboard is our sister,
Soon to head for ice and snow.
As is known by everybody,
She is the good ship Edisto.

We are receiving from the dock
Most every service known to man.
Steam and water, 'lectric power,
And telephone are in the plan.

Num'rous other ships are present
Members of the Atlantic Fleet.
Yard and District Craft are here, too;
Those are all that you will meet.

The SOPA is a Captain:
F. B. Warder, U.S.N.
He commands the ship Columbus,
CA seven four, again.

Nothing's happened yet this morning,
For last night was New Years Eve,
So ends this mid report:
The morning watch did us relieve.

Pages: [1] 2 3 ... 766
