Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea

Question: What does Admiral Nelson have in his left shirt pocket?

Chosen answer: Admiral Nelson is seen puffing on cigars in a few scenes (even though smoking is traditionally and historically forbidden aboard submarines), and his cigars are even a source of dialogue in the film. Specifically, when his quarters catch on fire, the blaze is initially blamed on a lit cigar, to which Nelson angrily replies that he ran out of cigars before the fire ever occurred. So it's a pretty good bet that Nelson was carrying a cigar (or cigars) in his shirt pocket.
