Because photo recon men were in short supply at Dobodura, Hill's entire darkroom unit was split up and farmed out: most were assigned to the 26th Bomb Group
four men and Hill were assigned to the 3rd Attack Group....For almost a month, the combined unit shown here processed aerial images for the December 26 Cape Gloucester landing on New Britain. Later, Hill reported to Martha that '2,000 prints a night was a common schedule. Many times we ate breakfast before going to bed. What a life." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
