Our photographer didn’t caption this trip to one of Hawaii’s pineapple and sugarcane plantations, but we can identify his companions as Elvin Phillips and (it looks like) Bert.

The sleeve insignias indicate that our photographer’s rank at this point was Staff Sergeant. Elvin Phillip’s rank was Technical Sergeant (known after 1948 as Sergeant First Class), and Bert from San Francisco was a Technician Fifth Grade.
