India & the Philippines

After entering the Indian Ocean, the USS Maryland sailed to India. Dr. Grayson saved a few pictures from Bombay, as well as hotel labels from Sri Lanka, Singapore, and Maylaysia. There really is not that much material from the trip before the ship reached the base in the Philippines. It does seem, however, that this long journey is the period when many of the pictures of crew competitions and amateur theatrics were taken. The sailors kept themselves busy.

When the ship reached the islands of the Philippines, Dr. Grayson appears to have traveled widely, visiting cities and nature sites while the ship underwent repairs.
