Cannot say enough about this little gem of a book. CAUTION: The last five pages or so were blank! Fortunately, I was able to find them in an online book archive, but imagine my state as the book was winding up and ended in mid-sentence, followed by several white pages. Do not know if this is universal to the reprints or just an anomaly in the one I received. Due to the nature of the copying, the illustrations are not well reproduced and there are other minor quality issues, but don't let that stop you. Mostly a charming look into day-to-day life of a sailor on a steel warship of the 1890s but also includes a first-hand account of the Battle of Manila Bay. With the one caveat, it is highly recommended.

When did the Navy change the diddy-box to a ditty-bag? This book doesn’t answer that question but is a fascinating glimpse of a sailor’s life near the turn of the 20th century as experienced by a common sailor. I enjoyed every page of this book.
