I've just reached the end of October 1915, we're back in Portsmouth, and the logs now jump to June 1916, so I'm making ground on you, though I don't expect I'll catch you up.

Took a quick look through some of my 'past.' We'll meet  a couple times in July & August in Halifax, Nova Scotia and then again in December in Bermuda!   ;)

Haven't gotten too far into 1917 yet. 'Issues' with the Mods in transferring data.   :-[

Here's a fun bit of transcription from the original transcriber of Berwick Castle:

Cautioned Mr William Morrison, Warrant Engineer R.N.R. for exceeding the allowance of spirits permitted under my written order to be drawn by him from the Ward Room Dress. The above entry has been mad by me. [Signed] WF Blunt Captain [Signed] Wm Morrison Warrant Eng: R.N.R.

 ;D ;D ;D  I once had a dress with big pockets, but I don't think they could have held the 'grog' allowance for the Officers
