Serial  0487                               15 July, 1943

Confidential [line drawn through this word on original]

From:      Commander, Fleet Operational Training Command, Pacific.
To:        Lieutenant Lafayette Ron Hubbard, D-V(S), U>S.N.R.

Via:       Commandant,  ELEVENTH Navel District.

Subject:   Letter of Admonition.

Reference: (a)  Record of Proceedings of a Board of Investigation
convened on board the U.S.S. PC 815 on June 30, 1943,
by order of Commander, Fleet Operational Training
Command, Pacific.

1.      The facts and testimony contained in refernce (a) in-
dicate that on June 28, 1943, while serving as Commanding Officer of
the U.S.S. PC815, you:

(a) Disregarded orders by having the vessel under your
command conduct a gunnery practice without proper
authority; and

(b) Disregarded orders by anchoring in Mexican Terri-
torial waters without proper authority.

2.      The above led to the receipt of a complaint against
the vessel under your command from Mexican Authorities.

3.      Because of the short time that you have been in command
and the exigencies of the service,  this letter of admonition is written
in lieu of other more drastic disciplinary action which would have been
taken under normal and peacetime conditions.

4.      A copy of this letter will be made a part of your official
record.

F. A. BRAISTED.
