RN: If you find letters or other misc in the logbooks...
« on: December 01, 2010, 03:40:35 am »
We need a little help from everyone.  If, when you're transcribing log sheets, you come across letters or disciplinary action records, please post the image URL here.  We're just kind of cruising through these to see who is mentioned, what interesting information pop up, etc.  No need to transcribe them word for word (unless you want to).  Just posting the image link here will help a lot.  Thanks.

Any mentioning of names, even if it's only to report a particular person boarded? Or only if something "interesting" happened.

Too bad I can only trace back My Old Weather a limited number of days. There were several courts-martial, amongst other things, and one incident (a fatal accident) where the victim's name, rank, and number were mentioned, together with his age and "current" address.

Anyway, L. Stoker Short was placed under arrest. The log doesn't mention why, but he was released four hours later.

Stokers Jenkins and Yates were taken to DQ's under escort, on separate occasions.
Stoker Fox returned drunk, from Simon's Town in South Africa,  and was placed under sentry.

Stoker Gifford, previously reported absentee, returned on board.
Stoker Warbrick, previously reported absentee, returned on board.
Warrant no. 43 read, possibly to stoker Fox, who was sent to DQ's under escort.

HMS Moldavia - 27 April 1916
10:30 Fireman cook discharged to Naval Prison [Glasgow]
http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ADM_53-49756/ADM%2053-49756-016_1.jpg

I'm not sure if this a fireman named cook, or a cook being disciplined for burning meals.
Or, if he's even being disciplined.  Maybe they preferred him to burn the prisoners' meals.

I've already posted this on the thread I've started for the Mantua, but it probably ought to be in this thread as well:

http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ADM_53-48278/ADM%20%2053-48278-005_1.jpg

One of the Mantua's crew committed suicide - although the log page says 5 August 1914 this is not correct, it was actually 1915.

Just to add to the above, there was a warrant read the day before, and four warrants the day before that - no details given, as usual, but I wonder if the events are related?

Do you really want every name posted here? Or by 'letters or other misc' did you mean anything inserted into the log books that isn't a log page?

I didn't know you could be written up for being drunk onshore or on leave!

I hope it isn't every name - the Mantua's log namechecks lots of people .  I'd be here all day if that was the case. :)

Hi loerie,
it is not necessary to report any boardings or leaving ship in here.
This thread is to collect " any letters or disciplinary action records" as mentioned in the first post of this thread.
Thanks for all your hard work!
