I came home today and found three boxes. Box #1 was from 4noggins, and contained a Peterson two pipe tobacco pouch, with a little pocket that's just big en0ugh to hold a lighter and two pipe nails. It's made of black. glove leather and it's pretty nice. Nothing fancy, really, just a basic smoking kit and I like it. Box #2 was from Cup O Joe, and contained two Peterson Irish Army pipes. One is a Model #86 (straight Apple) and the other is a Model #102 (straight billiard). The Irish Army has a honey-brown semi-matt finis, nickel mount with the K & P Person logo, and a fishtail stem. If I could find my friggin' cable I'd post some pictures! Box #3 was from Terry292, and contained a tin of Sutliff Great Outdoors tobacco and a little known piece of United States Naval Security Group history. First the tobacco: it's very nice. It's a Burley/Cavendish blend cased with anise and vanilla. Simply wonderful stuff, and I'm smoking it in my Pete Irish Army #102 right now. Great Outdoors is supposed to be Sutliff's answer to the old House of Windsor Field and Stream. I never smoked enough Field and Stream to know if this is an accurate comparison, but I really like the Great Outdoors, and I think I need to cellar about six tins. The little known piece of history is called a Flish. It's patterned on a Navy Warfare pin, but it's certainly not official - although I think it should have been. In the center is a Ship, to the left is a dolphin, and to the right is a wing. Taken together it represents the three elements of USN cryptologic direct support: surface, subsurface, and air. It was apparently a Pacific Fleet thing since none of the Atlantic Fleet direct support crypto weenies have ever heard of it, and to my knowledge you could only get them made in the Philippines. So, I put the Flish on a ballcap, filled a new Irish Army pipe with some Sutliff Great Outdoors, and suddenly found myself in the South China Sea in 1987. Soviet TU-95's are inbound, and there is a Soviet Pacific Red Banner Fleet Udaloy and a Sovremenny out there somewhere. I have no clue where their Foxtrot submarine is, but you can bet it's out there as well. Thanks for the good memories, Terry.
