That old Navy scrapbook of mine, / It’s crammed full of pictures and happenings of old, / Of the days that are now left behind. An extensive sailor’s archive (a huge scrapbook, hundreds of photographs, and five oral history cassette tapes) documenting his pre-WWII service on the flagship of the U. Compiled by Thomas Wallace Hood while on the. This archive consists of. An 8″ x 14″ 300-page scrapbook, filled with articles, clippings, photographs, cartoons, newsletters, assorted ephemera. Hood used 86 pages in the rear of the album to keep a daily journal. The archive also includes more than 100 loose photographs and Another 20 loose documents, letters, certificates, and membership cards, as well as Five 90-minute cassette tapes in which Hood provides an oral history of his naval service. The paper items in the archive are in nice shape. Although the tapes look okay, I cannot verify whether they play or not as I haven’t had a cassette player in years. In addition to commentary about daily shipboard life and duty as machinist’s mate, it includes many other lively observations events and happenings during his time on-board. Speed, speed, speed, all the time. Thirty one knots and no smoke. Dropped a depth bomb and then. Picked up dead fish. Fired the torpedoes and raised Hell. We put out 14 shells on the #4 gun, 82 on #3 all star shells, and 32 small star shells on #5 anti aircraft gun. Fired a torpedo, also. What a surprise I was appointed to mess cooking. Three months of washing dishes and peeling spuds. ” Subsequently, for days, Hood “peeled spuds. Lost a man overboard. Sharks got him, I guess. Every body is getting them some kind of preparation for the Southern cruise. Going to the fights tonight.. A typhoon is just ahead of us. Got woke up about 3:30 this morning, drenched to the hide. Walked around all day. I like it very much. The people are polite and clean and they will do anything for an American gob. Proceeded up the Yangtze River. Very pretty scenery coming up the river and there are English, Japanese and Chinese men-o-war here in Yanking. Well, I can say I’ve been ashore in Shanghai [and] Tsing-Tao. Made the rounds of the cabarets and did some dancing. Also drank a few. Went to the’Marine’s Café’. Lots of Russians here. Made the cabarets again. The girls all in native costume. The Exec says no more liberty until further notice, as a couple of fellows made an ass of themselves [in Chefoo]. Underway at daylight for. Hainan just off the French-Indo-China coast, to protect the American interests and missionaries. During the 1920s-1930s, Hainan was a hotbed of early Communist Chinese activity. This place is held by the rebel army now and the Nationalists are trying to take it over. The battle of Haihow was fought today and the town was taken over by the Nationalists. Not a shot fired in the town. There are over 100 loose photos showing shipmates (casual and posed images in various uniforms; including a Filipino mess steward and laundryman), recreation (soccer team and race-boat), equator ceremony with Davy Jones, Neptunus Rex, etc. , the bridge, running torpedoes, an officer’s gig, and bum boats.

This is a US sailor’s photo album with 109 real photo postcards. The first 2 photos are of Captain F. Naile and the USS Pyro. I learned that a Frederick Raymond Naile served on the USS Pyro from 1922 until 1924. The postcards all have the Azo stampbox on the back which dates from 1918 to 1930. A few of the photos have brief descriptions written under them, and some have handwritten titles that are part of the photo. There is no name for the sailor who compiled the album or details of his service. Some of the cards may have been commercially published, but many looks like they were made from original photos taken by the sailor. There are also 2 cards from Alcatraz, one of the Philadelphia Naval Yard, the Chapel at West Point and an observation balloon. I’ve taken out of the album and listed separately album pages with photos of the 1923 Honda Point California disaster where 7 Navy destroyers were wrecked and some photos and rppc’s of San Diego. She was decommissioned in 1924 and recommissioned in 1939 – she was one of the ships which survived the attack at Pearl Harbor. There are 2 other photos identified by the sailor as taken on the Pyro – one of the deck, and a very faded photo of the 2 dog mascots. The Panama Canal cards include the Gatun Locks, Emergency Locks, Pedro Miguel, Miraflores Gates, Culebra Cut and the Pacific entrance. Other Panama cards include the Taboga Island, Pearl Islands, El Vigia Village, ruins left by pirate Henry Morgan in 1671, Canal Administration building, hospital and the Leper Colony. I’m not sure if the sailor was stationed in Panama or if he just went through the canal going from the West to East Coast. The cards vary in quality – some are very sharp and clear, a few are blurry, and others very pale. The black paper tabs have stuck to the cards. I was able to remove them from several cards that I took out of the album, but it’s a tedious job that left slight traces of black behind. Several of the cards are apart from the page.
