F.Santos m.att.2c and G.Acuna, MAtt2c, absentees.

G.Acuna, M.Att. & F.Santos M.Att. returned from liberty 9 hours overtime.

These names match to sailors taken on as N.O.S. (Native O.S.) as part of the Native Filipino Insular force in the Albatross expedition to the Philippines in 1908.

They loved their popping candy on the Albatross and by late 1912 were on the way to perfecting popping cabbage.

Technical Support / Only getting WR pages to transcribe
« on: May 15, 2017, 06:49:07 am »
The last few pages I have only been offered the WR pages to transcribe on Albatross 1900.  I can find the comments pages by altering the jpg so they have been photographed.  There was not anyone else noted as active on the forum so I do not think anyone else was transcribing the stream at the same time as me.
