Hey Len Thanks for the reply. in march 1942 I was aboard a tanker the SS vera Cruz, we had two water cooled 50 Cal. mounted aft. one Merchant Marine below the gun tub to turn a hand crank pump for circulation. no compresser for the 4" 50 to clear out any burning powder bag piece's that might be left in the barrel so we had a tub of water on the gun deck and we had to swab out barrel each time we fired it
