Historical and Revision Notes
Revised sectionSource (U.S. Code)Source (Statutes at Large)
5946 34 U.S.C. 246. R.S. 1468.

The word "placed" is omitted as surplusage. The words "of war" are omitted to avoid an erroneous implication that the section does not apply to the commanding officers of noncombatant ships of the Navy. As of the date of enactment of R.S. 1468, all vessels of the Navy were "vessels of war"; the elimination of the words, therefore, preserves the purpose of the statute.
