This is my father and my uncle stationed at Pearl Harbor aboard the Raleigh. All three of my grandmothers children were stationed there at once. My other uncle was on a different ship, and I forget which one. I have other papers from that time, one being a menu for Christmas, and a letter my father wrote to my grandmother saying that he and Uncle Rudy were alright, but had she heard from my Uncle Gene. It has a censor stamp on it (I think that's what it was called, when I find it, I'll know) They all survived.
This is the cover of the envelope the photo was in, a small mat.
The photo of them.
An ancestor, I don't recall the name. However this is an interesting one because on the back she writes something like "mother received the shock of her life when I returned home wearing knickers". This photo suffered water damage. Maybe one of my sisters can tell me who it is, and if I got all the names right on other photos :D
Here's the back of that photo. I wonder how difficult, or is it even possible? to repair?
I'm suddenly very sleepy. Tomorrow I'll see what else I can find.
