A nice find !


Recommended Posts

This picture was found in the garbage ...what a shame history ends upon the trash. I'm honored to be the new custodian of it. It looks like it was taken on the flight deck. On the rear is written---John Francis Murphy - Air Group #2 - USS Hornet - WW 2. - Torpedo Bomber - Gruman TBF Avenger

Very nice find! I am glad you rescued it before it went to the land fill. Now John Francis Murphy will be remembered, as he should be.
