Shipmates on leave? Friends fooling around? Actors in a play? It's a lovely mystery to me.

More sailors in grass skirts, circa World War II. 17 photos from the collection of Bob Bragman. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/object/article?f=/g/a/2009/11/13/sailors_hula.DTL&object=%2Fc%2Fpictures%2F2009%2F11%2F13%2Flv-sailor_hula8_0500838364.jpg
I'm not sure that white socks are appropriate for wear with a grass skirt. Maybe the little cutoff "footies" that are favored in X-tube porn would work. And Doc martins would shift the image to a whole 'nother level.
Yeah, that makes me think it's in the "sailors fooling around" category. That's a fairly big mistake for anyone doing this sincerely to make.
