    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking for a place to feed my appetite for all things WWII, especially aircraft related. I am the son of a RAF comms guy and born on a former RAF base hospital at Changi.

    I have some content to share that my be of interest and just last week was lucky enough to be trusted with a collection of images, documents and propaganda (for want of a better description) materials from the Pacific theater. The owner was a base intelligence officer for the RAAF and his Grandson has the collection and has asked me to scan and share it.

    Regards
    Andrew

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    I found your forum by looking for an active place where I can learn more about the materials I have and share them with people who might appreciate them.

    Cheers
    Andrew

    Ok I'm ready to share two documents from the collection and would appreciate advice on what forum they should go in.

    1st Document is a first hand account of an escape and evade after the crew members plane crashed during an attack.

    2nd Document is an interrogation of a Japanese POW.

    Both are from Pacific Theater around 1943/44 as is the whole collection.

    Cheers
    Andrew

    Those sound like fantastic documents to see!

    The best forum for those to be posted to, would be in "WWII General", found here:
