Great research there TailUK :-))

On the stern level with the 40# Bofor mounts we see

Inboard - CO2 Equip, Tanks for Airplane Smoke Bombs
Outboard = 18 ?RCAREN Tanks

Tried a few translations/abbreviation's/letter changes & US Navy word/coding's to no avail

Fairly certain that should read "screen tanks" those mimeographed blueprints can be the very devil to read.

Yes, I would agree... so I can assume those tanks were "smoke screen" tanks... sure would make sense.  Case closed?  Tks for help guys.  Dennis

If you mean the width of the stairs, they are just over 2mm wide.  I had to pull the assembly off and drop it down some to get the bottom of the stairs to touch the deck... did the same on the other side as well. Tiny stuff.  Dennis
