In this photograph, my grandfather John Baker (left) can be seen performing minor surgery alongside Ph. M. Schaefer (right) on an unknown subject. Both men were Pharmacists Mates aboard the USCG Cutter Duane during WWII. This photograph was taken by Dale Rooks sometime in 1945 according to notes in the Warbook.
About John Baker’s Warbook
The Warbook is a collection of approximately 150 original photographs taken during World War II revolving around the travels of Coast Guard cutter USS Duane. This book was compiled by my grandfather John Baker, who is the subject of many photos. Each image and caption from the book will be sequentially posted on this blog, along with other historical research when possible.
