Dave Posted January 5, 2011 Share #1 Posted January 5, 2011 I know this is probably a strange question coming from me, but I don't have an answer for it... I just got research back on a fellow who served from 1913 to 1945. He was a Chief (MM) for a couple years during WW2, but retired as a Metalsmith 1/c! Prior to WW2, however, he was a Blacksmith. Now, this fellow made Blacksmith 2/c no less than FOUR times...but that's a different story when I post his career up (oh, he also fought Chinese bandits in 1917!) But my thought goes to...what would a Blacksmith have done? I know what a traditional blacksmith does (or did) but yesterday was the first time I've ever seen a Navy Blacksmith rate. Any of the pre-WW2 Navy guys savvy on the duties of odd rates? Thanks! Dave Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
