first line -- is the profession of Rodionov (surname)
3rd line means "chief of QC department (his signature)"
who was checking Rodionov's work.

BTW: russian is one of my native languages.

So the most plausible story is Rodionov was responsible for galvanizing the ammo cans, and the cheif of QC signed off on his work. The white powder found on the cans is some white rust. Makes sense to me, that last line does look like "I amm Kaput" though.

So why was the letter written in long-hand with a fountain pen on a brown paper bag. I'm sorry, but I believe something nefarious is at hand here. I'm now conducting an investigation to get to the bottom of this "supposed" letter.

Update: I just found this photo. Does anybody recognize anybody at this Russian ammo factory?

Here are some more. They are from ammo cans manufactured in the 1970s and appear to use stamps rather than handwriting:

Perhaps that is just what 50 year old paper looks like. No idea on the fountain pen, the last line did look like different handwriting to me.

This could be written not with fountain pen but with a "copying pencil" (a.k.a. "indelible pencil", "ink pencil", "chemical pencil"). In that case the dye would be methyl blue. If this is from 1947 from Soviet Union this would be highly likely.

Ok, I was right about the profession......  Now we have the (almost, aside from the signature) complete text:

Ошиновщик
Родионов
