The first issue of All Hands was printed as the Bureau of Navigation News Bulletin No. 1 (dated Aug. 30, 1922). Twenty years later, the title was changed to Bureau of Naval Personnel Information Bulletin. As America claimed "Victory in Europe" on the cover of June 1945, the magazine's new banner read, All Hands, and the name stuck. The magazine continues to be quite popular with navy personnel to this day. The entire collection of All Hands has been digitized and is available for public access. Our collection spans the war years 1942–1946. Select a year below and see the cover pictures of each month's magazine for that year.
