Mr Monkey aboard the destroyer Småland

"I hope these shells aren't live"

Mr Monkey preparing to go through a circular hatch in the floor Mr Monkey in front of rack of 120mm ammunition

Seeing an open hatch in the floor, Mr Monkey jumped through it and found himself underneath one of the two main turrets, surrounded by ammunition for the Bofors M50 120mm automatic guns. He had to walk very carefully between the ammunition racks and the automatic loading mechanism which took rounds up into the automatically controlled guns. Mr Monkey watched a little film about the guns, which made him decide not to annoy anyone who owned them, then scampered back up the ladder.
