Me, Babe and Elliot

“Me, Babe and Elliot.” Oct 11, 1947. Camp Drake. Tokyo.

This is one of those where the message is half the photograph. Got me laughing some!

Me, Babe and T-5 Elliot.

Place, our club.

Time, ?

and after, ???

Boy, what a night. HA HA.

Elliot and his buddies were of the 1st Cavalry Division and he was a Technician, a rank discontinued in 1948 but with the equivalent today of Specialist.

And it looks like “Babe” earned his nickname when he lied about his age on his recruitment form!
