Photo Caption:

The crewmen of the lightships had a weekly supply of newspapers, magazines and books that were delivered to them by the lighthouse buoy tender. However, they also found other ways of passing the time in this 1944 image. Here they played a card game, which included identifying the signal flags of Morse Code.
