Rat Guards - OT
Posted by Bill Rowe on May 17, 2017, 14:03:10
When did the navies stop using rat guards? Those were the sheet metal cones around all lines to the shore to keep rodents from getting aboard. They were installed to "Funnel the rats toward the ship." and the ones on phone lines were joking called "mouse guards". The question isn't important; it's just change that hasn't been remarked upon.
