Another picture from my dad Fred Pape's military scrapbook.
On the back of this photo, Dad wrote, "A real closeup shot of the combat navigator. Good camera. It shows my lack of a shave very distinctly. Taken next to Ops tent at K-1," so this would be late 1952.
Wood from old bomb crates was used to construct some of the facilities at K-1 and K-9. Just above Dad's head, to the right, you can read part of what was written on one: "[Explo]sives" and "Bombs."
