Description

"Bombing raid - some Indonesian location. A long flight from Dobodura... Outstanding bomb explosions over well built factory buildings It is a great Photograph - from the 3rd Attack collection. I was with them Nov & Dec 1943 and this is from them - Don't really know where" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Philippine Bomb Run. During his two years of service, Hill and his Photo Section crew processed, printed, and annotated an estimated 50,000 such photographs, sometimes as many as 1,200 in one night's work. Sgt Hill copied and saved only a few examples of this work. The rest may be housed in national or military archives." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
