Who are the two Generals?
This Pic is taken in Casablanca.
Maybe I think that the general in right is Ernest Harmon.

15.jpg doesn't appear to contain any generals. They are all naval officers.

ttvon,

Michael is corret. They are all US Navy officers. It is a Vice-Admiral. See the cap.

On the Patton picture we have a french naval officer as well, not a general. I think it is an admiral but can't see the stars on the cap clearly.

Kind Regards

Admirals also wore stars on their collars.

Navies do not usually have generals. Their top brass are called admirals. (Although if you go back a few centuries, IIRC the Spanish navy and perhaps some others did call their top commanders something like that.)

Michael
Thank you for your help!
But our top brass are also called generals in China.

thank you!

Then, when you get to photos of commanders of the Chinese Navy, you will be perfectly justified in calling them generals.
