    Deck space ...

    Access?

    So I was working my way aft aboard the Wisconsin and I walked by this cute little "Man cave" to the port side of Turret # 3.
    Any ideas of its purpose?

    Follow up ...

    BM I agree. Attempting to load that manly sized "shell" (?), in the "Alpha" Weapon must of been a hoot in a rolling sea.

    Working our way aft ....

    As we continue aft the exterior of the USS Whisky has been stripped of most artifacts found on active Naval ships, but if you search one can guess what was occupying the space before being mothballed.
