Cleaning ammo

Great pic of past efforts. If nothing else, the Navy is/was the cleanest of the services. Spent some quality time wiping waterways. Sailing through rain squalls just to get a fresh water dousing and washdown. The crusty salt residue would have been a huge issue for the automatic weapons, thus their, probably, routine cleaning of the rounds. The worst of it was when fresh water rationing resulted in the laundry being washed with salt water. Ever worn starched underwear? Hey, it was tough in the Med :( … .php?id=13


I wonder if the “plumbing facilities” are the same as those that the average sailor boy had to endure when the USS New Jersey was a ship of the line?

Rick, don’t you know that you simply paint over that crusty salt coating? ;) ;)
