Bombing of Darwin: Frontline Australia

Over the next few days I’ll be posting some pictures relevant to the 70th anniversary of the Bombing of Darwin on 19 February 2012. The town is buzzing as many inter-staters are here to help commemorate an event which is only now being recognised nationally. My post about it is here. Considering how isolated Darwin is, and was, I think the comparison with Pearl Harbour is interesting.

Frontline Australia

This plaque is at the Bennett Street end of the Darwin mall and was erected for the 60th commemorations.

This plaque gives an overview of events and casualties.
