Seaman Trainees in 1944

Seaman trainees wearing black berets in this 1944 video clip. Boys rowing, on the bridge, knot tying lessons and hoisting up the sails. 
Various shots of cadets being shown the correct way to lay a table and serve dinner, as well as shots of cadets cooking in the galley.

  1. Ah, once again the perfect match of berets and sailors. I especially enjoyed watching the part on dining etiquette. I somehow doubt that is part of the training any more.
