Starboard side forward – note the small ferry that is tied up alongside the ship waiting to take crew members ashore. The coast is just visible on the distant horizon. That’s the A-3 “Whale” just forward of the island and an A-6 Intruder just aft of the island.

Of note, these original prints were damaged by seawater and these are the best scans I could salvage until I rescue the negatives.
