Today, February 19th 2012 it was 70 years since Australia was attacked by the Japanese. The Northern Territory Police Museum Historical Society (NTPMHS) have put together an interesting video which describes the bombings, with personal accounts by police officers of the day.

Have a look at a wonderful fB album that KHS put together, showing the incredible photographs taken by Alan Sloane during air-raids by the Japanese on Darwin, from the Alan Sloane collection at SLWA. See - Alan Sloane - Darwin Bombing (KHS fB Album)

OR you can watch a DV we made of the first air raid on Wyndham 13 days later, on March 3rd 1942.
