Here is how Cliff Shaw, describes the collection in his blog post,
Navy Cruise Books offer a unique glimpse into the daily lives of Navy sailors. Similar to high school or college yearbooks, they were created by volunteers aboard a ship to help commemorate a particular deployment. Candid photos and portraits of the ship’s crew members breathe life into their daily experiences, while biographies and stories reveal a first-hand account of what life was like at sea. Images range from documenting moments of their daily routines (such as strategizing and reporting for duty), to more casual images that capture soldiers having a good time while acting in talent shows, winning pie eating contests, and more. We picked out some of our favorite images to help get you started.
