Re: USS California March 1942
In the first still I posted notice in the lower left the two sailors in blue shirts standing on the boat deck which is also painted. That deck was too high for any oil.
Too high for oil other than what might have been thrown up by the torpedo hits yes, but not too high for oil clinging to shoe bottoms and other items being moved around an oil-infused work area. Working on those ships was messy.
