I was on an Ammo ship that did a Med cruise and then went from Norfolk VA to Vietnam. USS Butte AE-27, known as the Lonely Bull because we sailed alone, never with the fleet. I suppose all Ammo ships do the same.

Did they ever light the smoking lamp on an AE?

Yep, daily ....there were designated smoking areas. Today, I doubt that is the case. The world has sure changed since then.

USS Durham was never referred to by that name while I was aboard ... and that was Precom thru commissioning and a Wespac deployment. Seems like a t-shirt maker may have made it up.
