Frank Schwerin's "Straight Flush"

Frank Schwerin on Robbie's fantail
Frank Schwerin, pictured on the fantail of the USS Robinson in 1953, displays his Straight Flush of wallet cards. These cards can be used to trump overly boastful " Been There , Done That " folks. Also Frank, by showing his Shellback Card, will never again have to go thru the unique initiation of first timers crossing the equator. Not shown is a card that he has up his sleeve, The Royal Order Of The Golden Dragon Card issued for crossing the International Date Line when the Robbie crossed the Pacific in July 1953.
