And if your Latin is a bit rusty -- the literal translation (I was told, since I never took Latin) is:
Don't let the bastard's wear you down.

From the publication "ALL HANDS" September 1956. Enroute back to Newport Rhode Island base Pillsbury was in an hellacious storm, and ship was coated with ice. This picture is not credited to anyone (typical Navy?). Although published in September issue the actual date was around January/February of 1956 if memory serves. I have some similar pictures in color which I'll try to locate and scan and forward.
