The Ship - All Hands - Decorations - Remembrance
Deck logs, war diaries and action reports are highly detailed accounts of a ship's operations, created either "as it happened" in the case of deck logs, or shortly afterwards (war diaries and action reports). The following transcriptions are provided for general interest and as research aids.
Note: The appearance of these transcriptions is similar to, but not exactly the same as, the original documents. Minor misspellings have been corrected: otherwise, the log and diary entries have been unaltered from the originals.
Deck logs and similar materials are available through PIKE Military Research.
