Figure 4-1 shows a sample WQS bill for personnel in the first section of the first division. The billet number consists of either four numerals or a letter and three numerals. The first numeral or letter indicates each person’s division; the second numeral indicates the watch or duty section; and the last two numerals indicate each person’s seniority in the section. For example, in billet number 1101, the first numeral (1) indicates the person is in the first division; the second numeral (1) that the person is in the first section; and the last two numerals (01) indicate the person is the most senior person in the section. The department is not specified here because the first division is always the deck department. Other columns allow for entry of the information from each of the ship’s bills. Titles for the headings in each column are the same as the bill, as defined in the Ship’s Organization and Regulations Manual  (SORM).  The division officer is responsible for making sure personnel know what their duties are. One useful way to accomplish this is to give each person a pocket WQS bill (fig. 4-2) listing the person’s duties as shown on the division WQS bill. As the ship’s manning changes and as per- sonnel are reassigned, the division officer has to continually update the WQS bill. The division officer must maintain a balance of skills in each section and arrange each section in order of seniority from top to bottom. These sections represent watch sections underway and duty sections in port, except for all-hands evolutions like the special sea detail. The WQS bill also has to be updated when annual leave or illness changes the composition of the bill. For example, suppose a Gunner’s Mate (Guns) Seaman (GMGSN) in your division is sent to school. If the GMGSN is replaced by a new SA, you will have to give the Gunner’s Mate’s assignments on the WQS bill to another experienced person while the SA is in training. Therefore, the school assignment of the GMGSN has forced you to make changes to your divisional bill. Changes in the watch bill made by the senior watch officer for the ship require corresponding changes to the master and divisional WQS bills. The division notebook is used for transferring information from the battle bill and ship’s bills to the WQS bill. The division notebook is divided to allow one part for each condition of readiness and each ship’s bill. Stations and duties for which the division is responsible are entered in each part of the book. Next to those entries are the names of the personnel to whom the division officer assigns each function. In other words, the division Figure 4-1.—Watch, quarter, and station bill. 4-6
