B. Davey and Goliath
D. Milton Berle, but more accurately Louie the Lilac from Batman.

We used to call it a sliding pond.

Seeing the photo of the cigarette machine reminds me that the Job used to have either a PA/ID or an AUC on cigarette machines in quarters.

I remember when cigarettes went up to 24 cents.....the machine required a quarter & the cigarette manufacturer had placed the penny change inside the cellophane wrapper just for use in vending machines.

3rd photo is a "mess kit" ...2 halves of metal plates one flat & one compartmented with a handle attached to use in Mess Lines ...in the USMC we all had a set....as you lined up to enter the Mess Tent there was first a GI Can (garbage can) with a burner underneath filled with boiling water & some caustic soap.....second there was another can of clear boiling water ....you held the pieces by the end of the handle & cautiously dipped the combo into the 2 cans then it air dried (somewhat) as you proceeded into the Mess Tent....i always wondered what the caustic soap in the first can actually was ? .....then again it probably did not make much difference as one of my early Base's was Camp Lejuene which is still under the Camp Lejuene Toxic Water Study from ground water contaminated with INDUSTRIAL CHEMICLE'S  back then    ...   https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&channel=mac_bm&source=hp&ei=YFF8Xrr7J6TJ1QHrv5WwAg&q=camp+lejeune+water+issues&oq=CAMP+LEJUENE+WATER&gs_l=psy-ab.1.2.0i10l10.15231.27093..30689...19.0..0.238.310.1j0j1......0....1..gws-wiz.....6..0i362i308i154i357j0i131j0j0i13.YULcCCZe64o

4th photo is a obviously a Boy Scout version of a type similar to a Swiss Army knife.....to this day i still almost always have my Swiss Army Knife (the "Bicyclist" model on my belt) of course unless going anywhere with a metal detector.

 Johnny, "The Skipper" as he was known from the very popular TV series "Gilligan's Island" actual name is; Alan Hale. After doing a little cheating, much like I did in my younger school days to get through, I found that info. "Gilligan's Island" was another one of those great TV series as has been discussed on this site in "Television from a different time" in the History section.

 Interesting, but "The Skipper", actually served at sea, owned a lobster restaurant, and booked boat cruises in real life.

 Sorry about the little cheating I had to do Johnny to find his name, "but it was kinda bugging me".

 Regarding that Swiss Army knife, I too have one. I keep it in the Willy Ds Buff Mobile all the time.

 Of course the old Boy Scout Handbook was the bible for so many of us young guys back in those days. I remember they had a merit badge that was given for "Firemanship". It taught us all about fire extinguishers and how to use them, what to do in case of a fire, and how to prevent a fire from happening. I passed that all on my own, WITHOUT CHEATING.

 Once again, THANK YOU Johnny for your "Throwback Thursdays", as some of us more senior members go back to the days of such a different time.

Thanks Willy for sharing. Yes, the photo is of Alan Hale, BUT the character portrayed in the photo above was BEFORE Gilligans Island, sorry little buddy. The question is "what is the "characters" name  Hale is portraying in the photo?  Hint; the television series lasted one season just before 1960...that's the twist...

I was in the Boy Scouts for a couple of years, the ONLY merit badge I earned, like you, was the "FIREMANSHIP" merit badge, I didn't give a hoot about the others ( the firemanship merit badge is top right in photo #8; collection of merit badges). Also, while completeing the merit badge at the local volunteer firehouse, I was told about the new "Junior Fireman" program that was being developed. I became charter member of the junior fireman program and turned my canteen in with the Boy Scouts.

 Johnny, after going through all that extra effort to cheat, in the long run it really didn't pay off. I guess for me just another lesson learned as I am still tying to grow up to be a "mature adult". I guess for some of us, "it just takes soooo long".

 We didn't have any "Junior Fireman" program in my day. I sure wish they did. But I would ride my bike with one of those pull chain sirens and some old rubber boots and a rain coat in a basket, chasing the fire trucks when they went by. Of course in my mind, I really thought I was a junior fireman. Sometimes if there was a fire, the guys would let me help them pick up the hose. WOW, how great that was. Some of them knew my father who was also on the job or they knew me when I used to go to the firehouse with him to pick up his pay check. (for photo of those days see: "COVID-19" - replies #33 and #34 in "Fire Operations").

Alan Hale Jr = Casey Jones (from a short lived - no pun intended - TV series of the same name)
