Description

"B-25 tail assembly Bar in the Officer's Club. 17th Recon Sqdn Binmaley, Lingayen Gulf area, Luzon" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Officer's Club at Binmaley. Interior: Describing the opening night, Hill admired the bar and told Martha that 'An engine cowling ring is the frame for a swell picture of a soldier kissing a girl, located center behind the bartenders. The pic is so good it made me homesick, and I was cold sober. Think how a poor guy must feel when he gets about half lit and looks at it." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
