You old Sea Dogs might have memories of nights like this
I only ever returned to the boat perfectly sharp....
I may have changed clothes 2 blocks away on the way back in....
Not me, I was a true snipe from top of my head to bottom of my feet, at least the first enlistment, then I got married and started a family so things changed as whites were not cheap.
We had this grease for the gun mounts and radars gears that I swear if you got a single little drop on your uniform it would spread until the whole uniform was covered. Don't know how many uniforms I ruined with that stuff.
Yep, I know the stuff. I was an FC!
It was moly lube, it was really hard to remove. During polywog night we took the weapons officer out, stripped him down and then smeared the molylube on him and tore a feather pillow apart and sprinkled it over him. Lucky for us he took it pretty good, but it took over a week for him the get the feathers and the molylube off.
Yeah that's what it was. Thanks for refreshing my old mind. I even misappropriated a can before I left the Navy. Had it for years. I finally disposed of it during a move.
You know what we called re-appropriating in the Navy they now call grand larceny in the civilian world
I was an ICMAN, ( fresh air snipe R division) we shared the same work area with the FC's on the old tin cans, in fact the stable platform was part of my gear too.
Most of my earliest toolset was Navy issue As for re-appropriating every working party for loading food we had to appropriate apple juice, yeast and sugar. Was some awful stuff but we made do. Plenty of un-inspected room in the powder magazines.
We called it over time pay..... lol
