DEVELOPMENT OF SHORE PARTY EQUIPMENT (STEEL WIRE PALLETS)
NAVAL SUPPLY OPERATIONAL TRAINING CENTER BAYONNE NJ
Pagination or Media Count:
An investigation and test was made of two designs of Steel Wire Pallets for possible acceptance as Shore Party Equipment to be used in amphibious Navy Combat supply. Final results of all tests included in the Navy Standard Test Procedure For Pallets indicate only limited acceptability of the Steel Wire Pallet Rolled Expanded Metal Deck for Shore Party Equipment use in combat supply. The Steel Wire Pallet Fibreboard Deck was proven by the same tests to be impractical and not acceptable for combat supply due primarily to breakage of the deck under normal operating conditions. The Steel Wire Pallet Rolled Expanded Metal Deck was found to be not satisfactory for a number of characteristics which are considered to be of utmost importance in amphibious combat operations.
