OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY,
Washington, May 16, 1927. The Bluejackets' Manual, originally prepared in 1902 by Lieut. Ridley McLean, United States Navy, and revised in 1914, 1916, and 1922, has been revised again by the Bureau of Navigation and is now issued to the service for the guidance and instruction of petty officers and enlisted men. As the training courses of the Bureau of Navigation have furnished another medium for issuing information of a specialized or technical character, the purpose of this revision has been to modernize the manual and to incorporate those things which tend to make an able seaman and a thorough man-o'-war's-man.
The manual is divided into the following parts:
Part II. (A to N) The subjects which every man on board ship should know.
Part III. Rudimentary seamanship and gunnery.
The department invites criticism and suggestions from commanding and other officers in regard to the form and substance of the book. Such criticism and suggestions should be sent to the Bureau of Navigation via regular channels.
Thanks are due to the United States Naval Institute, Annapolis, Md., for their courtesy in waiving their copyright to the title, text, and plates of the Bluejackets: Manual, and to D. Van Nostrand Co., of New York, N. Y., for permission to use certain plates from Knight's Modern Seamanship.
