ARTIFACT: Rare WWII United States Navy Liberty Pass from famous battleship, USS California (BB-44), which had been on Battleship Row at Pearl Harbor and came back after repairs to play an important role in the rest of WWII. The yellow, metal edged pass reads: "U. S. S. California", "No. Barge", "S. Comora". "This entitles the bearer to leave ship on liberty if entitled to liberty; and, if ship is at a Navy Yard, to pass through gates. To be shown to O. O. D. when leaving, and dropped in check box on return to ship. Use of this card for other than authorized liberty or by other than the person named is an offense" and the bottom is signed by a U.S.N. Executive Officer. The reverse reads: "NAVY DEPARTMENT BUREAU OF NAVIGATION OFFICIAL BUSINESS", "Penalty for private use to avoid payment of postage, $300.00". Comora's Liberty Passes came along with two of his USN ID bracelets, see links below.
