To search, simply enter the period in which you are interested in the boxes below then click the 'Search' button. Please input dates in yyyy/mm/dd format (e.g. 1941/01/31 represents 31st January 1941).

Information in the database is sourced directly from Hood's Ship's Logs, held at The National Archives at Kew, London. At present only basic details are held of where the ship was on each date. Ultimately, we would like to provide a facility which lists in detail the entries to be found in Hood's logs. Transcribing the logs is time consuming and we will move only slowly towards this ultimate goal. If you would like to help with this project please contact us.
