From the 1943 Lucky Bag:

REGINALD CLAIR LAMB, JR.

Annapolis, Maryland

Nineteen years of life in Annapolis finally convinced Reggie that the Naval Academy was the only place to start his career. Versatility should be his middle name. Besides participating in gym, soccer, track and being active in Log photographic work and the French Club, Reggie managed to eke out a pretty fair name for himself as a wrestler on the varsity. Between workouts, he could usually be found dragging—a different girl every time. Whenever help was needed at the Naval Academy, the call was, "Where's Reggie?" When he gets out in the fleet, the same demand may well continue to exist.

He was a member of the wrestling team and of the LOG staff.

The Class of 1943 was graduated in June 1942 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.

Loss
