Teamwork Keynote of Anti-Aircraft Artillery Success
, In few branches of our armed services are teamwork and co-ordination more important than in the anti
aircraft artillery. Pictures shown here were taken during maneuvers at Camp Davis, N. C. Upper left: When
the alert sounds, anti-aircraft crews must reach their stations in seconds. Dress is of slight importance, but
they must have their rifles, cartridge belts, gas masks and helmets. They race to their posts. Right: This
picture was made while the 90-mm gun was actually in full recoil. Lower left: Captain Rousseau peers
through a slit in the battery commander’s underground station to check on the operations of the crew.
Sends Son to Fight Against Homeland
Shamed by the Jap attack upon Pearl Harbor, James S. Hondo, 51, a
Jap-born resident of the Hawaiian islands, was gratified when the army
permitted his son, Herbert, 18, to join a special combat regiment made up
of Americans of Japanese ancestry. Herbert is shown in the center
with his mother and father, who wears his American Legion cap. He is
a veteran of World War I.
This Wildcat Is a Real Jap-Killer
Nineteen stenciled Jap flags mark the score of this Grumman Wildcat
shown on famous Henderson Field, Guadalcanal. The score was made
by several different pilots, of which Tech. Sergt. It. W. Greenwood, a

Tunisia. U. S. armored forces under command of Lieut. Gen. George
Patton Jr. in two days advanced 30 miles to recapture Gafsa and to go
12 miles beyond. Photo was flown to Algiers and transmitted from that
point in seven minutes to Washington in the new two-way radio transmis
sion system put to its first practical test by the V. S. army signal corps with

Chicago Cubs’ Mascot to Be Goat
It’s a goat instead of a bear that Manager Jimmie Wilson of the Chi
cago Cubs (left) will use for a mascot this spring, as his charges play
exhibitions in and about their French Lick, Ind., training camp. Manager
Jimmie Dykes of the White Sox (right) will have a similar talisman. The
goats’ names are “Bunt” and “Homer.”
Caution—Wrecked Plane Being Repaired
Surprised? So were we to learn that the two seemingly peaceful rural
scenes depicted above really masked the repair and restoration to service
of a wrecked U. S. air force plane. Members of the service group at
Greenville, S. C., are taught to rescue, salvage, and repair wrecked
planes in a battle area subject to air and ground attack at any time. At
top, plane is covered by a screen which blends it into the disguise and
makes it unrecognizable from the air. The “farmhouse" and “silo" in
the background actually are engineering installations. Below, a realistic
touch is added to the camouflage installations of the service group by
Their Majesties Pay Visit to Yanks
Their majesties, the king and queen of England, are shown passing a
group of American soldiers who are busy playing cards at the American
Red Cross club in Northampton, England. The photo*was made during
their majesties’ visit to the club, and here the king seems anxious to
give a bit of advice to the Yanks.
Winds Up in Tree
The idea was to “attack” at dusk,
during Third Army maneuvers in
Louisiana. But first, this paratroop
er had to call for help to get down
out of a tree.
Mrs. Paul D. Brown of Orange,
N. J., admires the portrait of her
husband, an air corps major. After
hearing rumors of his death, Mrs.
Brown had cabled for confirmation.
The day after, stories were released
telling how Major Brown command
ed a Flying Fortress which took
part in the raid on Vegesack sub
plant near Bremen, during which
U. S. planes blasted 19 buildings.
This is a photo-diagram of the
dreaded 4,000 pound super-block
buster, made in the United States,
and dropped on Germany in night
and day raids by American fliers
and RAF men. Approximately 2,200
pounds of the two-ton bomb are
TNT and other secret explosives.
The rest are shell and fuses.
Dropped from a plane 20,000 feet
up, the bomb strikes the ground at
pulverizing 600-mile-an-hour speed.
