This is Bill Hagwood (r) along with one of the quarter masters.

I think that his name was Lovely. He had quarter master watch

on the Conn. and I was the Conn. phone talker for that watch.

We were on the way back to San Diego from Japan in 1951.

This is a couple of TNs from the ship. At the time we

had a Republic of Korea Navy DE to nest with us
