Overexposed photograph of three shirtless unidentified U.S. Marines posing with their arms around each other outside on a lawn between the wings of barracks at what is believed to be Camp Lejeune, NC, around 1948 or 1949. The men are wearing swimming trunks, as they and several other Marines pictured around them are outside sunbathing on cushioned mats near their barracks’ laundry line. Photograph taken while U.S. Marine Lindel D. Dunlop of Zeigler, Illinois, was stationed there [circa 1948-1949].
