(military term) - ordnance

"For one year, starting in May of 1942, Ford taught elementary seamanship, ordnance, gunnery, first aid, and military drill at Navy Preflight School in Chapel Hill".

What is ordnance? From what I can gather from dictionaries, "ordnance" seems to mean pretty much the same thing as "gunnery", yet since both words are used there is a difference? So, what does "ordnance" mean in the context?

Wish to thank in advance all who reply.

Hello, linguaphilies.

A question to everyone who speaks English (both native and non-native speakers):
In your opinion what public person (actor, singer, politician etc) has got the most beautiful, excellent or even just perfect English accent \ pronunciation?

Thank you.
