Back in my boatyard days I had a friend who work in the Merchant Marine during the second world war. He survived being torpedoed during one passage and was a veteran of the Murmansk run. He used to tell a story of off-loading a crate of condoms at Murmansk for the Russian Red Cross.( or some variation there of) Before the crate was swung out of the hold the Cargo chief had a deckape stencil "Small Only" on the crate. Jack said in a very short time the instances of Russian women dating American Navy and Merchant sailors increased greatly.
