Ice cream barge

Perhaps the war’s most unusual ship was commissioned in 1945 at a cost of around one
million dollars. It was the US Navy’s ‘Ice Cream Barge’ the world’s first floating ice cream
parlour. It’s sole responsibility was to produce ice cream for US sailors in the Pacific region.
The barge crew pumped out around 1,500 gallons per day (500 per shift)! The concrete hulled vessel had
no engine of its own but was towed around by tugs and other ships. A second barge, also in
the ice cream business, and under the command of a Major Charles Zeigler, was anchored off
Naha, Okinawa.
