North African Invasion, 1942.

Army Commander MGEN. George S. Patton, and Navy Commander RADM. H. Kent Hewitt, on board ship during the North African Campaign. Photo Dated 4 December 1942.

This view was probably taken aboard USS Augusta (CA-31) on 9 November 1942, as general Patton prepared to go ashore for the first time.

A good joke appears to have been told.
