To All My Friends On DPReview Part 2 Images

Thank you to all who commented on my last post regarding the bombing of Darwin.
As promised here are my fathers images (scanned poorly by me)

Cpl James F Ryan AIF

This portrait was taken of him in 1946 after he returned home from Papua New Guinea after repatriating many hundreds of Japanese POW's

This imnage was taken when he joined up in 1939.

The ladies in the pic were "unidentified" "cant remember" he said Yeah Right dad!

As promnised images he took of the Darwin boming in February 1942

A couple of nice pics of Darwin. Good Photographer the old man was

Lastly, a pic of the local Japanese General Adishi handing over his Shin Gunto Sword to an Australian officer in PNG after the japanese surrender.

I have further images of his travels during WWII I will post if people are interested. The head hunters and natives of remote PNG are of a great interest.
