Personal Gear

Personal gear was issued to the crew about once per month by one of Cairo’s three quartermasters, 64 year-old, Thomas Kennedy, 26 year-old D.D. Knapp, or 31 year-old Christen Kruse, from Denmark. 

Clothing and Footgear
Very few textiles survived. Lots of leather scraps, shoes and a variety of buttons were recovered. Some black silk neckerchiefs survived, one still knotted from the last time that it was worn by a Cairo sailor
.

Sewing Notions
Cairo Sailors were responsible for mending their own uniforms. They carried sewing kits called “housewives.”  These kits usually contained small scissors, pins, needles, linen thread, spare buttons and thimbles
