Robert Knippenburg sent some photos
while onboard the USS Laffey

These three Electrician Mates (l to r) Knippenburg, Phelps, and Card were onboard 1957
when this was taken in front of the Electric Shop hatch when it was located starboard side aft.

This was taken in 1957 or 1959 in the Persian Gulf or Red Sea.
The seated Electricians Mates are ( l-r ) Jordan, Knippenburg
and Toleman.  I believe this is 3" Mount 33.
