Thanks guys, I thought it would be obscure!
For Brits, KP originally stood for Kitchen Police,
with "police" taking the (obscure) meaning of
cleaning up. We also use the expression "police
the area" meaning picking up cigarette butts, etc.
Painting the rocks white has an up-side, since it
spruces up an otherwise drab-looking squadron area.
