Disposing of Ammunition, SS Stanley Park
Disposing of Ammunition, SS Stanley Park

A member of the SS Stanley Park's crew dumps a shell for the ship's 4-inch gun over the side following Japan's surrender.

Stanley Park carried a variety of weapons intended to counter threats from enemy aircraft, ships, and surfaced submarines. Japan's capitulation in mid-August 1945 removed the last possible threat of military action against Allied ships, so ammunition like this was thrown overboard to remove the risks associated with keeping it on the ship.
