Restoring the officer’s wardroom to WWII design
In the 1950s/1960s, the Officer’s Wardroom had cement poured in an attempt to level the deck, vinyl toles were laid on top of that to update the mid-century decor. Restoration on the Officer’s Wardroom began in October 2016. Our Field Day crew removed the tiles and we began to remove the cement.
