More Naval irreverence from my favorite flag officer. The further adventures of Boatswain's Mate First Class [for now] Fatso Gioninni. I reread everything Gallery published, both light and serious because it's worth my while.
The Navy I remember, Blackshoe / Brownshoe, a sailor is a sailor. Many a sea story that started with "This ain't no s..." in this book, but I think perhaps some may in fact be true as some sea stories are based on a true fact...

Fatso is a petty officer in charge of a landing ship in the Medeteran Ocean running errands foe the US fleet. Along the way he and his crew have various adventures as the act as free spirits. An enjoyable, humorous read.
Read the earlier book on "Fatso" Gioninni, _Now Hear This!_ years ago aloud to a friend & just did this book aloud for my husband. Lots of fun.
One of the most hilarious books I've ever read! Definitely a fun read; I wish this book would get to be in much wider circulation.
