Instructions for the Guidance of the Engineer Force

In February, 1918, the chaser fleet was preparing for the trip across the Atlantic. Among the documents issued to the commanders of the chasers was a manual, "110-Foot U.S. Submarine Chaser - Instructions, Care and Operation of Machinery Plant." This document, dated February 14, 1918, is an addendum to that document.

Note: This document was bound by means of a brass rivet, which still holds all but the last two pages together. What you see along the top of pages 1 through 5 is the edge of the cover page, which has been rotated up for the scan.
