Description: (Battleship # 21) Print after a sketch by T. Dart Walker, entitled Christmas Eve in the United States Navy. Its original caption reads: Giving the famous Highland toast and song for sweethearts and wives. Wherever Uncle Sam's fighting ships are stationed throughout the world, it is the custom of the officers to rise, as here depicted, at the conclusion of the Christmas Eve festivities in honor of the absent home folks. This sketch was made by the noted marine artist, T. Dart Walker, while crossing the Arabian Sea on board the battleship 'Kansas'. U.S. Naval History and Heritage Command Photograph.
