Verso: "15 January 1945. Our main theater just before the start of a USO Show. The stage is quite sizeable and has curtains & drapes made of various colored parachutes. The sketch was not quite finished before dusk came. The screen has been placed behind the theater during the stage show. The dressing rooms are right behind the stage."
Maurice explained the USO toured all the camps with soldiers and marines and put on shows. The major place that show took place was Lae at the replacement depot. Maurice.1677
