Are any of the completed ships doing the Northern Patrol? I'd love to see all that zigzagging in action. ;D

Unfortunately I don't think it is on a big enough scale for the zigzagging to show up.  I think the Northern Patrol ships will all look like they're more or less stationery for three weeks or so, before setting off for coaling.  What would be interesting would be a graphic showing all the ships of the 10th Cruiser Squadron - you would really be able to see the patrol lines, how the ships moved up or down the line, how the lines themselves changed over time.  Plus of course the occasional special mission to Iceland or elsewhere.  (Note to Development Team - you need have no concern that I expect this to ever happen!)

Hi Caro,
Superb. ;D
I also want those maps
I use Google Erth, but I do not know how to turn the layer on the maps.
Do not know if this is possible.
Where can I download this layer?
Are these maps were generowne one time?

I think we would have to have access to all the data in the computer to generate that layer independantly - and I seriously doubt that will ever be open to the forum, for reasons of safety and security.  But we can save the pictures from the blog, the same way we get JPEG links on our log pages.

That is very interesting - I wonder how the data is mined from the logs - I rarely use the Ship pick list because the Foxglove mainly notes ships arriving and leaving what ever harbor she is in, so I put the entries in Other, which enables me to note the time of the action, in case that is of some value to someone.

A typical entry looks like this:
0834  Hollyhock sailed

Yes, a lot of my ship interaction is in event-other as well because they are coming and going from harbour or receiving/discharging ratings, delivering coal, or various other activities which don't fit with the 'ship' categories.
