The typewritten page with the story was found inserted within the hand-typed USN Clerical Forms and Procedures Manual created by Pharmacists Mate Howard Arthur Wilson. It's apparently an account of a sinking ship incident that either Mr. Wilson was involved in; or one of the servicemen under his attention at the Naval Hospital.

Although they are not diaries, it seems that the two manuals were his duty position reference guides; together with detailed record of events and incidents relative to either his unit during the war, or those he encountered returning home from the war; including, but not limited to:

- actual medical records and completed diagnosis forms;
- official letters and orders regarding various servicemen and their medical disposition, condition, and fitness for duty;
- temporary duty orders to accompany the remains of a fallen serviceman to his final resting place;
- completed medical patient diagnosis and dental charts;
- official wartime letter from the U.S. Navy to the father of a sailor determined to be a deserter;
- and more
