(U.S. Navy photo, pawlik collection)This photo dates from 1955, during the period when John F McCarthy was assigned to the squadron. The occasion for this squadron formation photo is unknown. It could have been to celebrate the award of the unidentified trophy visible at the feet of the sailor in the front row, center of the formation. As shown in the insert, John (Jack) McCarthy is in the front row, two places to the right of the group of officers. Assistance in identifying others in this photo, or verifying the date and occasion on which it was taken would be appreciated.
