Schedule of Punishments


This is pretty serious stuff. Published 71 years ago today, these are the punishments WAVES could receive for various offenses during boot camp at the Naval Training Center in the Bronx. Disobedience of Shore Patrol? That S.C.M stands for “special court martial.” D.C? Detention Center.

Shape up, ladies!

The schedule comes from the special collections in the Schlesinger Library at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.

Low Pressure Chamber


WAVES at Pensacola, Florida, instruct Naval cadets in the proper use of oxygen equipment via a low pressure chamber. The unidentified WAVE in this photo mans the observation post. She communicates with those inside the chamber using the microphone.

The photograph comes from the National Archives.
