Typical Battle, Watch, and Routine Bills

The Battle, Watch, and Routine Bills for 1630, 2100, and 2200 Ton Destroyers show a possible distribution of personnel for these ships as a typical example. They do not alter any current Bureau, Fleet, or Type orders or directives. Any individual ship's Watch, Quarter, and Station Bill may vary considerably from these typical bills, especially in the assignment of condition watch stations.

The descriptions of General Quarters Duties are referenced on these bills by the GQ numbers in the left-hand margin, and Routine Duties by the R numbers in the right-hand margin.

The actual number of men required to man all General Quarters Stations is indicated in each bill, and the number in excess of the allotted complement is noted. Complement figures are those of 14 July 1945. The number in excess of complement indicates the present average figure found necessary to man the battle station under current operating conditions, but in no way establishes any doctrine or standards.
