November 27, 1945

27 _____ We got back into our compartment today only a few cases of disinterry left on ship _ weather very nice but ship is rolling a lot because of heavy seas.

Photo shows signal flags blowing in the breeze above the Mobile. This particular configuration meant an admiral was visiting. The admiral's staff carries the flags with them and runs them aloft so the rest of the fleet will know which ship the admiral is on.
