John Wayne's 100th Birthday

In "She Whore a Yellow Ribbon" (1949) the troop presents Captain Nathan Brittles (John Wayne)with a solid silver watch for his retirement. He puts on his reading glasses, just after this picture was taken, and reads the engraved sentiment on the back: "To Capt. Brittles from C Troop. Lest we forget."

Lest we forget!.......... That'll be the day!
