Readers of the Baked Beans books will surely recognize the name John Farkas. He was one of the original crewmembers that I was lucky enough to have met and interviewed. John’s son Joe recently sent me some pictures that he came across.
Joe also sent a picture of his dad’s Crossing the Line card (March 9, 1944) when he and his shipmates were initiated into the Realm of King Neptune and became Shellbacks. Check out Vol 2 of Baked Beans and read John’s cool stories about the initiation shenanigans!
