Darwin : A Time to Reflect

At 0958hrs on the 19th February 1942, 188 Japanese carrier based aircraft from the same carrier fleet that bombed Pearl Harbour, commenced bombing Darwin.

 

Thirty minutes later more than 243 people had been killed and some 400 wounded.

 

May those that perished on that fateful day continue to Rest in Peace. May we remain forever cognizant of their sacrifice.
