U.S. Coast Guard Cook and Baker ,,non rated

I am 85 ,,, still a Cook and a Baker... I started my career of Commissary during WW2 as A Mounted Patrol Guardsman. Our Station was on Little Talbot Island, Fla. Off Fernandina... I lied about my age and was 15 at this time... We needed a cook and Baker for our 23 man crew... thinking the Galley be better than the stable,, I volunteered for the Galley Position,,,, The stove ,Wood... The Water, A Pump, (Hand pump)...Never having cooked on a wood stove let alone Cook before I was soon to find out there was never time to learn,, one did what one had to do,, and you just dug in and off you go....
