What good shots from the USA, never seen them before. When at Adelaide
River last year, I took photos of the air raids list at the war cemetery.
Raid No57 - 30-6-1943 @ 1230 Fenton Field was attacked by 21 Fighters and 27 Bombers, it was defended by 38 Spitfires of which 7 were destroyed, and 4 destroyed on the ground. Japaneses losses were 3 F-6B Destroyed, 2 B Probable and 1 F-5B damaged. I am not sure of what the type of bomber is from the abbreviations.
We saw the armco shelter by the railway line, I should have guessed it was for ammo.
A nice touch fitting a ladder to the nurses truck:-))
