    The kicker is the ears. Very, very similar. People disguise themselves in all kinds of ways, but almost near think of disguising their ears, because it's rather hard to do right.

    Facial details in the pic/foto are spot on.

    I'd say very likely. Lockwood was an important player in the Pacific War.

    For the life of me, I can't recall who this admiral is. The painting is based on a b & w photo of him but I can't find it anywhere here.

    Oh well; guess I'll list him as "unknown" for now.
    If you don't have anything else to ID him with that's your best course of action, I believe.

    The portrait artist really churned them out at a rate of about 3,500/annum.

    Or Arthur Struble.

    If you're inquiring about Dugout Doug's "retirement", then I'd go with Struble.
