Up R & R (2) R & R (3) R & R (4)

R & R - at Bad Hamburg, a former S.S. Rest Area (which they no longer needed)



(High Dive Platform Was Included)
"Andy and Chown"

(Despite Barger's notation, Bob Greimel has now identified the standing swimmer as himself.)"
Chown and I took R&R in Copenhagen," reported Greimel, "The bikinis worn by Chown and myself were sewn together in the packing shed using kerchiefs, such as those worn on women's heads.  How else could you acquire a bikini in1946 Germany?  We wore those same bikinis when we went swimming in Copenhagen.  I think we were the sensation of the day because those kerchiefs became transparent when wet!"

(Some preferred good old American baseball)

(Even if it meant using a soccer field to do it.)
