Home on Leave

Here's a young sailor doing his best to smile for the camera even though he's freezing.

This photo of Richard "Dick" Ensign was taken in front of the Ensign home on South Hobart Road. There is no date, but I suspect it was circa 1945, at which time Dick was 20 or 21 years old.

(At left, in the background, is Eldon Harms; at right, Dick's brother, Bob.)

Here he's looking a bit more comfortable.

Notes on the back of the original say it was taken in the summer of 1945. Location unknown. (Insignia unrecognized, but that's not surprising for me. Wouldn't it have been great if he'd gotten to be Ensign Ensign?)
