Marine troops having fun. Somewhere in the Pacific they used a lasso to
capture this albatross. That was one mad gooney bird. He was released

Everett Jones, Bill Hagwood, Grady Peek, and then
there is Tonsillitis Jackson inside the 40 MM gun tub.
Do not recognize the mates in the watch cap also in the gun tub.
This 40 MM gun crew is at battle stations but I do not recognize
anyone in the picture. I must have been taking this shot from the aft
fire control tower. At one time I was the phone talker at that tower
and just happened to have the camera with me during this time.
