What is a "meat safe" ?
Posted by Bob Wiringa on 8/5/2021, 7:03 am
I'm reading the classic "British Destroyers" by Edgar J. March. There are a number of references in the early pages to a "meat safe", e.g., in photo 3/2 of T.B.81, where it appears to be a box hanging from an overhead line at the stern. I can make some guesses, but does anyone have a definitive answer as to what a meat safe is?
I also notice references to an "earth closet" pointed out in several of the photos, but I think I can guess what that is.
