Part of Naval duty is keeping things shipshape. here, WAVE Aspasia Phoutrides, Master at Arms, makes sure the cots are up to snuff in the WAVES barracks in NAS Seattle, Washington in September 1943. WAVES say the blanket at the foot of the bed was known as “the admiral.”

The photo comes from the National Archives.
