Chronological order
Under each year entries are arranged by month, with those for which a day of the month can be identified coming before those without. Entries with no month are normally grouped at the end of the annual sequence unless an approximate time of year can be identified.
References are in the form of YEAR MONTH DAY, as appropriate and/or possible, the year being omitted where the reference is within the same year. The 24-hour clock is used, references being given in hours:minutes.
