I am afraid that I am as clueless as Lt McPhee as to the meaning of what C.C.C. just said. Color Davis? Full-a-porky-pies? Party Rocks Harts???

Would my character know this slang (or accent) after 10 years in the Army? Or do I need to send him back upstairs to ask C.C.C. what was meant?

And I know that a hogshead is a rather large barrel - would these be just random metal scraps?
