Johnny lost a tooth

Three sailors. RPPC. Private Collection.

Three WWII era American sailors. RPPC. Private Collection.

On the back is written “Johnny far left”. He’s more experienced than his two buddies, having completed 3 campaigns.

Did he lose his front tooth banging into something on the ship? Or maybe he lost it less heroically at a port tavern… :) (I recall having somewhat of the same conversation about another picture in this collection!).

A very handsome trio though. They’re covering the backdrop, only a few flying birds showing by Johnny’s face.

RPPC: EKC 1939-1950
