Aboard aircraft carrier "Belleau Wood" on raid on Wake Island: view from starboard fantail on flight deck, two chiefs in foreground, "talkers" in rear

Description

Abstract:
Original ink and wash drawing signed and dated by Greenhalgh; view from corner of carrier flight deck, sailors and officers under wing of plane; fleet of warships at sea in background.
Notes:
Title from ink notation on verso. Published in Yank, November 19, 1943, page 3 as: "The largest task force ever assembled in the Pacific forms the background for this scene in the evening. The two chiefs at the left are getting a little air after chow while the talker in the center reports a plane formation to the bridge. 'The Sunday afternoon before the raid,' Sgt. Greenhalgh wrote, 'the pilots had a game of touch football on the flight deck. And during the raid I was busy eating steak and ham sandwiches.'"
Gift of the artist, 2001.
