Jack-of-the-dust is the traditional name for the cook in charge of the storeroom and refrigerators on a naval vessel. I served as the jack-of-the-dust on the USS Stein (DE 1065) during it's second Western Pacific cruise in 1974.
We usually didn't have time to check the delivery against the invoice, especially when the ship was underway. I'd check the delivery after the fact and adjust the invoice later.
