Photograph and caption released by Commander Naval Forces Far East, under date of 20 October 1951.
His bed, and the surroundings, consist of .50 caliber machine gun ammunition in wooden crates, ammunition cans and unpackaged in links. Crates are marked with both Navy Bureau of Ordnance crossed cannon and Army Ordnance flaming bomb.
