Time for a Sandwich
This was in the BBC news. One of the ships based out of Yokosuka, the destroyer Stethem, which Nathan has been on and has the hat to prove it, stopped at Vladivostok recently which is an East Russian port. They celebrated the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945 with a US Navy - Russian Navy sandwich making contest. the Russians won for best sandwich but the US had the most creative presentation. The prizes were Vodka, of course, hats and sweatshirts with ship stuff on them. Look at the cucumber sails the Russians made! Cute.
