Cold War Group: Storis - Where was this ship?
« on: June 23, 2017, 03:25:05 am »
For this set of records we need very simple information for a first pass.

Tracking Arctic journeys:
We need to know which log books contain journeys to the Arctic, in the Arctic, or from the Arctic, including, unusually, those made during winter months.
Kevin has suggested that we consider anything beyond 55 N as being in the Arctic. However, it appears that 45 N may be a better choice for the Atlantic; please use that for now.

Purpose:
Our long-range goal is to map the edge of the Arctic ice both in the Atlantic and in the Pacific.
Our short-range goal is to locate the useful log books so that we can go back for more details.
Kevin has asked if we can break the work down in this way.

Ship's logs:
Here the logs are grouped by the year. You don't need to sign up for the whole year. Just specify the month or months that you want. Please report the location on a monthly basis.

Other sources:
You can also look through this reference to see if a list of the journeys has already been transcribed:
Storis (WMEC-38/ WAGB-38/ WAG-38/ WAGL-38 ) CG Historian from 1/1/1946 to 12/31/1955

Details to report:
1) The year, the months when your ship was on a journey to the Arctic, in the Arctic, or on its way home from the Arctic, and whether it was in the Atlantic or Pacific.
2) If your log has a page specifying the journeys or you found a list elsewhere, please report that finding.
3) There is no need to record the presence or absence of ice.

Below is the list of logs.
Pop a note in this topic to offer to take a set of logs, and then post your results in this topic as well.

It's as simple as that at this stage. Thank you.

Glancing through CG historian, it looks like Storis probably spent the vast majority of its time on Arctic duties:

to 1947 Dec: Stationed at Boston
1947 Dec - 1948 Sep: Stationed at Curtis Bay MD
1948 Sep - 1957 Dec: Stationed Juneau

Thanks, I've done the first 18 months and she spends quite a bit of time off Greenland. However, she also spends quite a bit of time in Boston which is south of the critical latitude so I'm still going to have to go through the logs.

I'm happy to do tbis sort of study because I can fit in bits and pieces in odd moments and when I've got fed up with sorting out the current log keeper on Marmora. He rarely specifies anchorages or harbours, refers to many British ships as "A" or SS "A" etc and has a few handwriting quirks just to stimulate my brain cells. However, he does at least use proper ink which means you can see the text.

I don't want to take on another demanding tasks while I'm editing because I would like to contribute to finishing the WW1 logs before Nov 2018. After that we editors will decide where to move our efforts.

I thought it would be easier to take responsibility for a ship than liaise with someone else and possibly duplicate effort.
