|My grandfather George Shilston ( from Dawlish, Devon) served in the
Royal Navy during WW1 and we know what ships he served on and during what
time periods he was on them. We also know that he served on submarines
during some of the time period. I have been to the PRO and looked
at the ships logs of all the ships he served on but I cannot find the information
I am looking for. The logs do not name (or, rather, give the number) of
the subs. And although they mention that on a particular day the sub left
at such and such a time and returned at such and such a time, the log does
not explain what the sub was doing, what it encountered, if it was in
battle, which sailors were assigned to it, etc.
Do you know of any source, either primary or secondary, that gives
Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
