USS New Hampshire (BB-25) taking on coal. On submarines we hated doing 90 day stores loads, all hands would be involved and there'd be canned goods EVERYWHERE. Loading coal must've been a special slice of hell with cleanup being icing on the cake.

LOVE THAT NED KELLY ONE!

There's some pretty interesting back story there, if you look him up, he was actually like a real life Robbin Hood, he raided banks and burned the debt papers of farmers, fought the corrupt police force, and gave money to the poor. His armor was made out of plow bottoms that he beat into shape. he had many battles with the law, but he always got away, until one battle where his brother was killed and he was pushed over the edge, he could have escaped, but he chose to run no longer, and to have one last suicide battle with the police, he went in guns blazing with two revolvers. The shot that finally took him down was actually an ankle shot, I think he pleaded with the officers to kill him on the spot... He was later hanged.
