Leyte, LST 626 5
"Soldier reading on deck of LST 626, Dec 1944" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Reading Onboard. Crossing the Pacific, soldiers frequently had hours and hours to spend on deck at ease. As pictured here on another ship a year later, Hill and his fellow soldiers passed many pleasant hours of smooth sailing by reading -- books, magazines, letters, newspapers from home -- while keeping their life jackets close by." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
