Welcome to The Bluejacket's Manual web site. The basis for the site is of course, the Navy's
In addition, the Recruit's Handy Book, Petty Officer's Drill Book and the Deck & Boat Book were used as early guides for the US Sailor. Again, for that reason, they are also included at this site.
The Bluejacket's Manual was, and still is published by the U.S. Naval Institute as a "Bible" of the Navy for the US Sailor. In modern day, this publication is issued to the new "Bluejacket" on arrival at Boot Camp.
I have added "Command at Sea" and plan to add "Naval Officers Guide" in the future. Guess the site is turning into more of a Navy Publications History Site.
