Hello there,

I am putting together a family history video about my father who served on the USS California in WW2. I wanted to find out if this site or it's members had any photos of sailors or other candid shots from on board ship. I have found several of the BB-44 but few of it's crew.
My father served from 1942-1946, so photos from that time period would be preferable.

I really appreciate any help.
