    Naval "HEAVY" Ordnance...

    Here are a couple of neat photographs of U.S. Naval heavy ordnance shells from the WWI era. I thought some in the group might enjoy seeing them.

    Best regards,

    Nice. Can anyone read the sign in the upper right of the first pic? Something about Fruit Stones and Nut Shells saving lives. Interesting that would be included in a display of ordnance.
    What book did these pics come from?

    Dano hit a home run regarding his explanation of the homefront drive! THANKS Dano!

    Rick, I was doing some quick "surfing" and didn't record the specific sources.

    Randall, I think you hit the home run, WWI era U.S. naval ordnance is not easy to find, even on the grand web. Gerat....Dano
