    An interesting Remington Rand...

    This pistol was issued in 1946 by the Naval Gun Factory in D.C. to a LtJg. who was a courier for Operation Crossroads at Bikini Atoll. Operation Crossroads was the first nuclear test after the war, which consisted of two detonations, Shot Able and Shot Baker. I have the original documents and all the equipment that came with it...

    "Able" and "Baker", the old phonetic alphabet. Brings back a few memories. The old version was being phased out and the newer phased in during my brief service career.
