Research Resources

A comprehensive list of links accumulated by editors.
They are used as a source for research whilst editing the official log-books of Royal Navy ships from the World War 1 era.

Many thanks to the late Gordon Smith for graciously letting us use the information available from .

Thanks in equal measure to Silvia Cavalieri for her valuable help with the graphics and testing the applications.
For the latter also Steeleye needs a warm word of appreciation.

Thanks to Caro for helping me with my shortcomings with the English language.

And thanks, of course, to all those volunteers who transcribed and edited the log-books.
