FLAMMABLE  LIQUIDS.—  Liquids  having  a flash point below 100 degrees F and do not meet one of the compressed gas definitions. CORROSIVE LIQUIDS.— Acids, alkaline, and other liquids that, when brought into contact with living tissue, will cause severe damage by chemical action. In case  of  leakage,  these  substances  will  materially damage the aircraft structure (in case of air shipment), or  will  destroy  other  freight,  or  cause  fire  when  in contact with organic matter or with certain chemicals. Corrosive  liquids  include  nitric  acid,  sulfuric  acid, battery  fluid,  etc. POISONOUS   MATERIALS.—   Poisonous materials are divided into three classes as follows 1.  Class  A,  Extremely  dangerous. 2.  Class  B,  Less  dangerous. 3. Class C, Imitating or dangerous to health. The label for poisonous materials is the same size and shape as the other labels. HAZARDOUS   RADIOACTIVE   MATERIALS are identified by labels shown in figure 14-7. HAZARDOUS  MAGNETIC  MATERIALS  are identified by labels shown in figure 14-7. INDUSTRIAL   CHEMICALS/MATERIALS   are identified by MIL-STD Symbol 1341. The MIL-STD symbol is a square label within which is centered a large diamond symbol, segmented into four parts. The top three parts reflect the type of hazard with respect to health, flammability, and reactivity and the lower fourth part  reflects  the  specific  hazard  of  the  material,  when not specifically describable by any or all of the other three  parts.  In  addition,  the  categories  of  health, flammability, and reactivity show numerical degrees of hazard varying from zero (0) through 4 to signify no hazards, slightly dangerous, moderately dangerous, dangerous  or  extremely  dangerous,  respectively.  (See figure  14-8.) BASIC CARGO DOCUMENTS Basic  cargo  documents  are  normally  prepared  by the loading activity. They are used to standardize shipping   procedures   for   military   cargo   or military-sponsored  cargo.  These  ducuments  are: Cargo Stowage Plan. (No prescribed form.) Cargo  Manifest  Water.  The  Navy  currently  uses Transportation   Control   and   Movement Document  (DD  Form  1384).  Other  services  use Cargo  Manifest  (DD  Form  1385). Cargo  Manifest  Recapitulation  (Water)  (DD Form  1386). The  following  paragraphs  discuss  the  use  of  these documents. Cargo Stowage Plan A cargo stowage plan is a diagram of a ship’s cargo space  that  shows  the  location  in  the  ship  (on  and  below deck) of all the cargo aboard. The stowage plan shows accurately  the  location  of  cargo  by  hatches.  It  also shows  the  cargo  for  each  port  en  route,  the  location  of heavy  lifts,  the  capacity  and  location  of  ship’s  booms, remarks on special items of cargo (location and quantity of mail, classified cargo, protected cargo, and so forth). The stowage plan shows cargo in the lower holds in profile (side view) and cargo on the deck and ‘tween deck  (top  view). The cargo for each port of discharge is shown on the stowage plan by a different color. If it is not practical to use a color code, the stowage plan may show the location of cargo by cross-checking, shading, or some other means. If all the cargo is for one port, no coding is  necessary. All cargo is shown on the stowage plan in long tons (2240 pounds) and measurement tons (40 cubic feet). The  cargo  stowage  plan  serves  much  the  sane purpose as the stock locator file does in the storeroom. It helps organize loading so that the cargo is accessible for unloading and quickly identifies the location and type of cargo for any given port. Ocean Manifest The   Transportation   Control   and   Movement Document  (TCMD),  DD  Form  1384,  and  the  Cargo Manifest, DD Form 1385, are commonly referred to as the  Ocean  Manifest.  Each  loading  activity  prepares  the manifest  to  cover  all  cargo  loaded  at  that  point.  A separate manifest is prepared for each discharge port, each hatch location, and each consignee. ADD Form 1384 is shown in figure 14-9 prepared for an ocean manifest. 14-9
