I recently purchased a large lot of WWII era pics from the family of a man who was a photographer on New Caledonia.  Some pics nice pics of Eleanor Roosevelt and of Bob Hope and members of his show.  The group included pics of these two Generals.  Can anyone help ID them?

The pilot standing with Bob Hope is Robert Westbrook, a P-38 Ace with the 44th FS who didn't survive the war. Bull Halsey is the guy smiling and holding the cigarette in his left hand

Thanks for the bonus ID on the P-38 pilot.

I don't recall ever seeing a picture of Halsey smiling like that. I didn't recognize him at first. But thaylt definitely is him. The other guy looks familiar but I can't place him.

Found more pics.  Looks like they were all seated at a party.  I think the other General is Gen. Harmon.  What do you think?

Yes, Gen. Millard F. Harmon, Jr. He always used the long dark cigarette holder you can see in this photo.
