Page Fifteen

NAS Port Lyautey had, by the time the photos on this page were taken in 1957, become an oasis. The long-term efforts of the resident U.S. Navy Construction Battalions had transformed what had begun as an outpost airfield on the banks of the Ouede Sebou. Among the amenities, courtesy of the Sea Bees, was a very nice Enlisted Men's Club where entertainers from Europe and the U.S. regularly came to perform. New Year's Eve was an occasion when the performers pulled out all stops, as is illustrated by the collection of photos below.
