G.S. Dole Collection

Officers of the Chaser expedition to Archangel.

This is a shot from the same set as the photo on page 119 of Cinderellas, and on page 7 of the Motorboat issue. In this version all eleven men are visible. The tall man in the center is Lt. Cmdr. Griffin, the commander of the Dvina Detachment. To his left, holding the pipe, is Lt. Dole. Lt. Dole's XO, Ensign Williams, is shown behind Lt. Cmdr. Griffin's right shoulder. Note that there are several British officers present. These are officers from HMS Birchol, the tanker that accompanied the chasers.
