I think I've met him. He was a friend of the PT-Boat, as he had helped us acquire several of our machine guns. There aren't any details on what happened yet. Someone thought the round had been dropped, but that is just speculation. I'm guessing they made their own homemade ammo and could have been an issue. End of breech life?
