Mystery Item

Found this "sucker" in my basement in a pile of old keys during a spring cleaning "drill".

Mystery Item???

Any submariners want to guess what it is?

Ship Service Turbine Generator-- sstg, yes minus the rubber flange. After I left the Navy I used it for a couple of years as a key ring. Thought it was lost until today. - LL

LL, is there a spring-loaded ball bearing on the small end? If so, it mates with a detachable set of keys on, you guessed it, another ring. - Vnezuelan Locksmithmate2

Plug for the EBA connections through out the boat. It should have a rubber washer on it also.

Heh, amazingly, when our boat when into the yards, most of these suddenly ended up "damaged" and had to be replaced by the yard. And soon after, all of A-Gang had new keychains ;-)

Aaaaa yea..., I seem to recall that one was "damaged" as well and someone in A-gang gave it to me. How else would govenment property end up LL's basement. PBS, thanks for the reminder.
