The first film, "Drills and Exercises" shot by Lieutenant L. A. Wheeler, shows trainees in a variety of drills and exercises on land. "Training Cruise" includes an extended segment of a training cruise on board the USS Wilmette. "Captain's Inspection, 1942" dates from 1942 and depicts a formal but brief Captain's inspection that took place at Abbott Hall on the University's Chicago Campus. The film was shot by Herbert H. Sadler, father of V-7 midshipman Herbert W. Sadler. Hilde Sadler Neasbe generously donated the film to the Archives.
