Asiatic Station - Squadron Routine, General Orders, Circulars including mention of 2 oz. of whiskey in the Medical Emergency Box
[Japan] Although the rules of the U.S. Navy may sound a bit boring, this is actually a very interesting little publication that covers the myriad rules and regulations that officers and crew on navy vessels had to follow whilst in Yokohama and other Asiatic ports. The U.S. Navy commander of the Asiatic Station at the time was Rear Admiral George E. Belknap, who was on the flagship Omaha.
