    The purpose of the standard issue journal was to train the power of observation, the power of expression and the habit of orderliness. They were regularly checked by officers and a requirement for the examination in seamanship for the rank of lieutenant. The log records the daily activities of Knox as well as historical events such as General John Monash's death and the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
