Royal Canadian Navy :
USO Show at NRS Churchill, 1955.

Ron Thivierge says: " These three photos were taken at NRS Churchill some time in the summer or early winter of 1955, from a USO show that played at the US base there and then came over and did a show for us in our wet canteen."

Editorial comment: I have never seen a more morose and unhappy audience. When I asked Larry about it, he replied "That's what happens when you're stuck in isolation."
