|Drawing of B-17E 41-9012 at 7-Mile Drome
Wartime caption: "A night time scene of soldiers pictured standing in front of B17s taking off, with searchlights glowing up into the sky. Dargie noted, "Twenty bombers (the greatest number to this date) took part in this raid. One failed to return. A couple of nights later forty-two B17's went on the same mission. This aroused great enthusiasm in Moresby at the time and we all felt the Japs were at last getting something of their own back".
