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.
