Hi Ted,

So, if you had a FAM ride at like 0800 hours ... you'd go out, come back, have classes ... but if you had an afternoon ride - that's it? You would have chow and your day was over?

Tim;
Yep, that is correct. As Charlie said the class was split in two sections. The days training schedule should read, for instance:
Class 7 Group A
Morning 0800-1100: Familiarization ride, Location: boat basin pier 2. Instructor: ENS. George Cox USN
Lunch 1100-1300
Afternoon 1300-1600 : Characteristics of the 77' Elco PT Boat Location:Classroom 3 Instructor: LTjg. Robert R. Green USN
Class 7 Group B
Morning 0800-1100: Characteristics of the 77' Elco PT Boat Location: Classroom 3 Instructor: LTjg. Robert R. Green USN
Lunch 1100-1300
Afternoon 1300-1600 : Familiarization Ride Location: boat basin. pier 2 Instructor: ENS. George Cox USN

Then as Franks post said: if the officer student did not have to stand duty or was a duty second(stand by), it was off to dinner. I am sure they had some sort of informal night study after dinner. As for night evolutions a week was Pre-designated for this and would be stated in the training schedule. For example: Monday 21 Sept- Friday 25 Sept 1942 Night evolutions: Night Navigation/Patrol Tactis/Night Attack.
Take care,
TED

Ted ..............

Thanks.

Could you please email me offsite ...

I'd like to talk to you more about this, OK? I don't want to publically say I am asking all of these questions.

OK?

Garth
