Crew's Quarters

On a Destroyer Escort, the space allowed in the crews compartment for each crewmen was 1/6th the space allowed for a prisoner in a US Federal Prison during WW2. The crews bunks were made of a canvas lashed to a round metal frame with a small diameter rope. On the bunk was a two inch mattress. A large sheet or mattress cover the shape of a pillow case was fit over the mattress. Each crew member had his own bedding which he took with him to each duty station he was assigned during his Navy Career. He had two wool blankets,one pillow,pillow cases, and mattress covers.His bunk would be made every day with the blankets folded and placed at the foot of the bunk and the pillow at the head. The Master at Arms would check each living compartment every day.All his personal items and his clothes were stored in his own personal locker.On a DE most of the lockers were foot lockers under the bunks.
