(a) When the accounts of the disbursing officer of a naval vessel

are lost as a result of the destruction of the vessel, his return

If the return for the last month has not been made, the pay

because of her wreck, loss, or destruction, the pay and emoluments

(because of the sentence of a court-martial or the finding of a

court of inquiry, or by other satisfactory evidence) to have done

destruction, to have behaved themselves according to the discipline

of the Navy, continue and shall be paid to them until their
