Also have a look at the photo album of Harry Russell, Caronia's executive chef.
Photos courtesy of his great-granddaughter Eleanor Williams, one of the original transcribers of the log-books.

This link does not work for me. I just get a blank screen - no error message :-\
(The problem doesn't seem to be www.naval-history.net because the link to HMS Caronia works)

Sorry, my mistake, the link is case sensitive.
Try this one: http://www.naval-history.net/WW1Memoir-Caronia.htm

Another log complete!
Keith's edited logs of HMS Fox, 1915-1919, have been added to the logs already published.
There are now eight Journey Plotter maps (two revised, six new) for the complete logs.
Many thanks to Keith and, as usual, to our publisher, Maikel.  :)

We've managed to fit in the publication of one more completed log before the end of the year.
Kay's edited logs, 1917-1918, of HMS Victorian have been added to the published logs edited by Stuart.
The complete logs, 1914-1918, are now illustrated by Journey Plotter maps for each year, plus a full-voyage map.
Well done Kay!  :)

Here we go with the first edit of the new year!
The edited logs of HMS Cumberland, with 10 Journey Plotter maps, were published today.
Many thanks to editor and mapmaker Howard.

Today, the edited logs of HMS Marmora were published, together with six Journey Plotter maps (made by me).
Many thanks to editor Rosemary!  :)
