Can someone explain to an old wafu why fishheads (when at battle stations) wear this white cloth balaclava on thier heads? where does the anti flash come from? if an exorcet missle comes hurtling through the ship or a nuclear bomb is dropped, I cant see a piece of white cloth being a deterant to saving your life. Officers seem to be attatched to this piece of kit, when you see it being worn in the ops room it just adds to poor commications and a lack of command. perhaps i am missing something and it does save lives.
