Babcock's Join the Navy the Service for Fighting Men is one of the great classic images of World War I.  Holding a quirt with one hand and holding on for dear life with the other, a gung ho swabbie cheers as he rides a speeding torpedo as if it were a bucking bronco. Anyone who has ever seen the great comedy classic, Dr. Strangelove, remembers how the actor, Slim Pickens, performed a similar feat when he rode a nuclear bomb to his death as it descended from the bombay doors of a B-52 over Russia. 42x28 excellent conditon, conservation backed.
