In reading about the Armed Guard and the merchant marine I am aware that, on some ships, there was sometimes tension between the AG and the merchant seamen, for a number of reasons.
For any of you vets, do you remember any tension between the two groups, either from personal experience or from talking with other men at the time or later? If so, what was the cause or causes? What happened? Tell us about it.
