Marines On The U.S.S. Indiana

Marines On The U.S.S. Indiana

Here's a picture of the Marines on the U. S. S. Indiana in 1911. Note the Sailors (I guess) sleeping on the right foreground. Interesting and note the belt, looks like the same belt I was issued in the 1940's and wore until I retired. As you can see the picture has a couple small problems BUT the sleeping figures always threw me.
