What movie is this? Do you have a link?Still on the prowl for more FLetcher DD information.
There was a series of B & W feature films produced by Time in 1951.
The theme covers the war in the Pacific. Quite a bit of newsreel and Combat Film are drawn upon.
In one 43-minute segment, the narrator recites that the guns on a Fletcher DD became so heated that the crew paused to cool them down with a fire hose.
The film shows a 5-man team manning a fire hose and forcing water down the barrel of the 51 mount.
Question .... did the narrator know what he was talking about.... or was this just dramatic license?
