*** If you have a little known naval or military fact, send it to lundquist989@cs.com for inclusion in an upcoming issue of DEFCON 1. Rick Strutner provides this bit of dubious naval history:

It was necessary to keep a good supply of cannon balls near the cannon on old war ships. But how to prevent them from rolling about the deck was the problem. The best storage method devised was to stack them as a square based pyramid with one ball on top resting on four resting on nine which rested on sixteen. Thus a supply of 30 cannon balls could be stacked in a small area right next to the cannon.

There was only one problem — how to prevent the bottom layer from sliding/rolling from under the others. The solution was a metal plate with 16 round indentations called a Monkey. But if this plate were made of iron the iron balls would quickly rust to it. The solution to the rusting problem was to make Brass Monkeys.

Few landlubbers realize that brass contracts much more and much faster than iron when chilled. Consequently when the temperature dropped too far the brass indentations would shrink so much that the iron cannon balls would come right off the monkey. Thus it was quite literally cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey. And all this time you thought that was a vulgar expression didn't you? You must send this fabulous bit of historical knowledge to at least a few and unsuspecting friends.

*** Naval History Seminar

Colleagues: Please join us for what promises to be an informative and

entertaining presentation.

Lecture: “Stephen Decatur and the Formation of the Navy” by Robert

Allison, author of Stephen Decatur: American Naval Hero, 1779-1820. He

will discuss the life and legacy of Decatur, the youngest man ever to be

appointed Captain in the U.S. Navy. Decatur's legendary roles in the

war against Tripoli (1801-1805) and in the War of 1812 were crucial to

the young nation's well-being; his relationship with Robert Fulton led

to the development of the world's first steam-powered warship; his years

as administrator of the peace-time Navy and his understanding of

American politics and culture were crucial to the Navy's survival. He

will be available to autograph copies of his book.

When: 12:00-1:00 on Tuesday 17 June 2008
