From the 1952 Lucky Bag:

Roberty Bracy Gulley

Little Rock, Arkansas

R. B. turned up in Crabtown with a frown on his usually sleepy countenance. He just couldn't see any need for all this hustle and bustle. But he soon squared away, and demonstrated his executive ability by directing the plebe ballet and making a world cruise which ran aground on the rocks and shoals of the staff table. With a radio and time to hit the rack in the afternoons, Basil hit youngster year better equipped for life at Navy. When he got his weights from home, the thriving little business known as Gulley's Gym started operations, and he soon had Navy down to an exact science. With his proven ability to relax, the Fleet should hold no terrors for Basil.

He was also a member of the 1st Battalion staff (1st set).
