A snapshot of Pete Edwards and his wife Helen taken Dec 1960 in South Carolina. The man that sent this to me was a young boy when this was taken and remembers Pete was on the New sometime after the war. His dad and Pete served together in the war.
Good photo of Ensign Jim Norris, disbursing officer on New 1951-52. On liberty with what looks like New York in the background.
Unknown skipper. It looks early fifties and from what I can judge of facial features just might be Cdr HD Sturr CO in 49-50. If someone can recognize this and correct me or update me please do. I need all the help I can get.
Interesting fact
J.A. Hooper was Capt. in 1960 . He went to the Halsey in 1969 and was relieved by Capt. Nolan in 1972 who was Capt of New in 1967.
