“Buttons,” Espiritu Santo

Went over to visit the new officers club at “Cub One” today. The beer was excellent. The club itself is most amazing and would do credit to Hollywood or New York. It is improvised from Quonset huts and finished inside with beaverboard and bamboo. Indirect lighting. Mahogany bar. Large Petty-type paintings on the walls. An oasis in the desert!
