Barber Shop and Battle Dressing Station

The barber shop aboard a Destroyer was a location where sailors could get free haircuts as well as do a little socializing while off duty. The ship's barber had all the tools a civilian barber would have including a barber chair, clippers, scissors, combs, tonic, a barber's pole on many ships, and sterilizers. This space doubled in emergencies or battle conditions as a battle dressing station complete with surgical instruments, table, surgical lamps, bandages and dressings, and other medical needs.
