The Queens Regulations and the Admiralty Instructions - 1861
INSTRUCTIONS FOR NAVAL INSTRUCTORS.
A Naval Instructor, when appointed to one of Her Majesty's Ships, is to be careful to execute punctually and zealously all directions he may receive from the Captain or other superior Officer, relative to the education of the subordinate Officers, or others placed under his tuition.
He is to exert his best efforts to instruct and advance the pupils placed with him in the several branches of science stated in these Instructions, relative to the examination of Midshipmen, and to be present with them when the observations are taken at noon, or for sights.
He is also to superintend the conduct and behaviour of his pupils whilst under his instruction; and he is to be careful to check and reprove any improper conduct or expressions of any of them, and if not amended, he is to report the same to the Captain or commanding Officer.
He is to keep a school journal or register, in which he is to note, from time to time, the degree of efficiency of each of the young gentlemen under his tuition, and the progress they are making in their studies; which journal or register is to be produced, every month, to the Captain of the Ship, and, when required, to the examining Officers. The Captain will allow him reasonable access to the charts and chronometers, for the purpose of instructing the young Officers in their use.
He is, every week, to examine the logs of the young gentlemen under his tuition, previous to their being sent to the Captain.
In Ships where no Chaplain is borne, he is to carry into execution the directions contained in Articles 5, 6, and 7 of the Instructions for that Officer.
