Washing Dress Blues

Washing "dress blues"on deck of the USS LaVallette, WWII.

There was always a “joker” who believed the “scuttlebutt” that our ship was scheduled to return to the States for a long overdue and well deserved rest. Washing “dress blues” at this time was the first signs of over zealous optimism.

Jack Wilkes was officially in charge of the ship’s laundry. If the “scuttlebutt” was true, our affable friend Jack, would have been busy day and night.
