The lush greens and vibrant reds of the jungles of the Philippines are represented in typical WWII photography as dull grays, whites and blacks. In this case, a WWII U.S. Navy seabee shot 35mm Kodachrome in an attempt to document his surrounding environment for posterity. Although the non-martial content of the slides may be boring to some, it is an incredibly rare glimpse into the everyday life of the seabee during WWII.
One thought on “WWII in Color: U.S. Navy Seabee in the Pacific Theater of Operations in 1945”
These are wonderful photos’s of the SeaBee’s in the Pacific Theater. My dad was there and I have some photo’s also but have no idea what they are or where they were taken as my father has been gone 15 years, Any recommendations on how to find out the origins of these photo’s?
