I love misplaced modifiers!

J. F. Hayes (Lds) of the U.S.S. Pampanga was placed in solitary confinement on bread and water for three days for being drunk on duty by request of the Commanding Officer of the Pampanga.

So, if your commander requests that you get drunk while on duty,should you be punished?  I want to talk to my lawyer!   ;D

Bring back the comma - all is forgiven  ;D ;D ;D

16 Feb 1900 at Iloilo

W. Juraschka (B. M. 1 C) from the U.S.S. Mariveles and who had been a prisoner in Insurgent hands for some 4 months reported on board he having been released by the Insurgents on the 5th near Sara and made his way to the army forces and thence to Iloilo.

It seems to me that since Commander Ackley took over that the temperature/wet bulb readings seem more reasonable. At 5:00 PM on 28 Feb 1900 the temperature/wet bulb was 83/75 a spread of 8F. This is, to my recollection, a record spread for this ship in the tropics and gives a relative humidity of 69%. Before him, the readings would have been 83/82 or 83/81.  I wonder if he has told the crew to move to a different part of the ship. I can't prove it, and I don't have the time or patience to examine the readings before and after Comdr Ackley took over, but...

He may just be keeping the wet sock reservoir filled.

True dat!

Years ago, Concord time, there was a note about them having to move to a different part of the ship because they were standing on or near a hatch. The spread was noticeably different for a while, but then it reverted.  A couple of weeks ago, Concord time, the Yorktown was anchored near them and the temperatures and wet bulbs of the two ships were very close. (Their barometers were a bit different.). Of course, no-one will really know. Having looked at weather data for a profession for 40 years these questions just naturally arise.

Thanks - whoever knew just 5 dates per day could end up counting for so much?

A full house has become pretty common, Stuart.

How about this! We can only applaud the log keeper's efforts:

Randi's correct. What a pity - even I would appreciate clear handwriting.

I am disappointed. Too good to be true, I guess.
