I have been researching my grandfather and found his navy diary of his cruise on the USS Idaho 1908-1911. He was an electrician, I believe 2nd Petty Officer, he names several shipmates, describes a man overboard with the date death of one man in a turret and tells of his port calls in England and France, the sail down the Mississippi, Atlantic coast,the Gulf, Cuba Guantanimo, Caribbean etc. plus data on gun firings and "games " with other ships. There are hand written charts and drawings plus newspaper clippings of the era and photos and souvenirs. Every day's activities is accounted for. There is a small green button with the number 13 attached to the diary, I don't know the significance of this. He mentions a visit on ship from "Helms" and other officers.

If there is any interest in this material for historical or study purposes, I will happily share the diary.

My father, Jason Ira Young, served on this ship in mid 20's. I have several photos and his Neptunus Rex certificate. Jason was born Sept. 5, 1905 and passed away May 16, 2001.
