Betelgeuse & Forrestal 1956

 Betelgeuse when she replenished Forrestal in 56. I may be mistaken, but I think we did the job right after a port visit to Naples. I was on the helm when the picture was taken, but shortly after it was shot, the skipper of the Forrestal called Capt Thatcher and asked him to get a better helmsman. So they relieved me.
I was scared to death. Every time I looked out the portside pilothouse door, all I saw was gray!
