War is Over! Celebrations 2
"The War is Over! Off comes the mustache" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Shaven Clean. As Hill wrote Martha, to celebrate the end of the war, a 'couple of boys who had prodigious beards were mobbed by others who produced soap and razors and began to shave them.' Here, still wet with shaving cream, Sgt Walter Brinkofski recovers from having his beard removed." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
