Photo 010 My grandfather, Robert Taylor, served on the Babbitt during World War II. He passed away in December 2002 and I just received a box of his photographs. Inside was a very large photo that is in horrible condition. The handwritten caption reads:

SHIPS DANCE
USS BABBITT
HOTEL BELVEDERE
JAN 6, 1944, N.Y.

Adam C. Woehler

Webmaster note: Normally I don't post a photo this large or in this condition, but the number of sailors, their wives and/or girlfriends, dictates we post this for posterity's sake.

Photo 011 My father passed away March 11, 2009. I had never seen any of these photos before finding them in a box hidden away in his closet. He served on the USS Babbit for 7 months during 1944. My father is at far left: Frank David, Torpedoman's Mate, Third Class. His caption written in the album is: "Gun watch - 3 inch, 50 caliber Atlantic." Contributed by: Barb

Photo 012 Same as #11 (above)
