Mr Harwood is in trouble again:

Corrected Engineer Lieut J W Harwood RNR (Tempy) for (1) making a disturbance in an improper place namely MAA's cabin on 20 inst; (2) incurring excessive charges for wines & spiritis on Feb 18th & 20th.  Signed F W Dean Act Capt, J W Harwood

Do they have a proper place for making a disturbance?  ;D

Good question!   :D  The Navy does seem to have rules for pretty much everything (not unlike religious communities in the old days) so perhaps there was a rule 'if you need to make a disturbance, you do it there'.

Greetings fellow HMS Raleigh enthusiasts. I led an expedition to dive on her scattered remains and conduct an initial underwater archeological site assessment  August 8-12 2012, the 90th anniversary of her loss at Point Amour, Labrador. I am currently working on a site visit report and stumbled across your work while googling. The original ships logs you are showing pages from are  tantalising, as I am currenlty trying to put together a chronology of her movements after her launch as part of her summary. There are also interesting historical inaccuracies in other references in such basic areas as her armaments compared to teh sorucfe matierial you ahev from ehr log books,w hcih iw ould take as being the most accurate information.  Is there a way I can see and search the Raleigh logs through this project you are engaged in? I would also be happy to share our site assessemnt report when it is completed for thsoe interested. Any help pertaining to more information on  the Raleigh and her crew is much appreciated.

Welcome to Old Weather, raleighdiver, we are very pleased to welcome you here.  We do have scans of the original ship logs for the last year of her life, July 1921 to August 1922. 

The Raleigh is one of the Phase 2 ships whose transcriptions are not yet online.  You can check for when that becomes available at Naval-History.net ROYAL NAVY LOG BOOKS - THE SHIP HISTORIES.  And feel free to read other raw and editing transcriptions we have there.  (Of the 310 ships transcribed, about 230 of them are currently online.)  All of our raw log scans can be found at http://old.oldweather.org/vessels?status=all and our logs from HMS Raleigh are all linked here.  The correct order of the scans is numerical, the list is sometimes out of order.  Her last log page is https://s3.amazonaws.com/oldweather/ADM53-82272/0019_0.jpg

Also, if you go to the start of the Ships, Battles & People section of the forum and use the forum search function in our header, you can find the forum discussions we had.

And if you are interested in the high arctic, we are currently transcribing US Coast Guard and other ships who sailed up there.  See The Dockyard section for a list of and discussions on those voyages.

Janet: thanks for the warm welcome and the Raleigh logs are a gold mine- I have had a quick look at some of the entries, for instance for her visit to Washington at the time of the Washington treaty restricting naval rearmament. Great original source material. Thanks also for the offer on Arctic logs-I have been there on underwater search missions for the wreck of Franklins  Terror and have been twice to Cambridge Bay to do survey work on Roald Amundsens "Baymaud" wreck there. Thanks for your help!

The following is  a list of documents included in HMS Mantis' log between the 14th and 15th of January 1919.

As far as I can see they weren't reported in this thread during transcription.

I have not transcribed them for the history as it would be very difficult due to the changes, etc. I have put in brief summaries for each page.
