Below is a photo of the Partridge crew from 1943. This was in a scrapbook that my Grandmother, Doris Krouse, put together sometime in the early 90s. You can click on the picture to view a higher-res version or follow a link here:
My grandfather, Thurman Krouse, is the sailor in the first row, left. I believe I recognize Jim White seat to the right of the captain, R. F. Snipes — but I’m not sure.
If you can identify anyone else in the picture, let me know. Also, if anyone can remember the cat and dog being held by two of the officers, please share that information. I didn’t realize that there were any animal aboard. Please view the picture through the link above and you’ll get a clearer picture than that one below.
I believe the Sailor 4th from the left in the middle row is my Father William Clements.
Very cool website. I just wanted to let you know on the list of crew members, my grandfathers name is misspelled. If you want to change it, it’s is Donald Wampler. It’s listed as Donard. Thanks!
I believe that the first seated officer on the right (as you look at the photo) is my grandfather Joseph Gossman.
