U.S. Navy Enlisted Men
Pose on the foredeck of a Virginia class battleship, after coaling ship during the early or mid-1910s. The man in the front row, kneeling second from left, has a USS Truxtun (Destroyer # 14) cap band on his "flat hat", presumably a relic of a previous assignment.
Photographed by Sargent. He took many photographs on board USS Rhode Island (Battleship # 17) in about 1913, and she may well be the ship seen here.
The original image was printed on postal card ("AZO") stock. See Photo # NH 103929-A for a view of the reverse side of the original print.
