Ship histories, Royal Navy and US

SHIP HISTORIES



Below you will find links to the edited transcriptions of our Royal Navy logs and US logs.
The editors work hard to present these logs in readable and, as far as possible, accurate form.
Most of the editors are experienced transcribers too.

From a recent Old Weather blog:

We chose our first batch of logbooks to cover the period of the First World War, as our climate records from this period were particularly poor.
This gave us not only invaluable new climate information, but also a new look at a key historical period which is about to reach its centenary.

To use our historical results, we teamed up with Gordon and naval-history.net. In Gordon's words: 'Our present world has been shaped by World War 1 -- as much a maritime war as World War 2. Not just the Battle of Jutland or the Allies' near-defeat by the U-boats, but Mediterranean, Belgian coast, South West & South Africa, East Africa, Persian Gulf, German raiders, Atlantic convoys, North Russia'.
We need to present our logbook records so they can contribute to public and scholarly understanding of the period.

The transcribed and edited logbook records are now a major component of naval-history.net ...

HOW TO BECOME AN EDITOR

1. Check the status of the ship histories (in the 'by NAME' column on the left) on Naval History: unedited, edited or being edited/reserved.

2. Select a ship you would like to work on. Click here for brief details and images of each ship.

3. Let owteam@naval-history.net know which log you would like to edit and the formatted WORD file will be emailed to you, if available.
In formatted files, the log page links have been activated, dates edited, and month and year headings added.
A quick check has been made to ensure the log pages are in date order, but this should not be assumed.
The WORD files range in size from 225Kb to around 2,500Kb.
There is no time limit. Editors may take as long as they wish to finish their tasks.
