- n. A high explosive comprising a mixture of tetryl and TNT.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
At about 400 yards we dropped off the side of the boat and loaded up with the amount of tetrytol that we anticipated we would need to level the beach so the LSTs could land, open their doors, and tanks could roll out.
I remember taking a few sacks of tetrytol and placing them on a reef.
