Stalking the U-Boat

Despite the grousing typical of military life, most men at naval air stations enjoyed amenities not available to their counterparts aboard ship. Aviation facilities (except NBG aerodromes) occupied fixed locations, with relatively permanent accommodations, and the Navy exerted considerable efforts to provide adequate clothing, barracks, mess halls, latrines and washing spaces, and entertainment opportunities. Nowhere was this more apparent than in the area of food. This was undoubtedly the best-fed group of servicemen the nation had yet sent to war.
