Before and After below the Pershing's Crew Quarters
The crew quarters was little more than a closet. In this single tiny room is a shower, sink, head, berth, hanging locker, stereo and clothing washer & dryer combo. These pictures were taken under the berth. Imagine the unfortunate crew member that was forced to live under these conditions and probably suffered from continuous bouts of bronchitis or ended up sleeping up on deck. A corner of the standard Arid Bilge pickup is partially visible under the larger hoses in the picture on right.
