Location Focus
-------------------------------------------------------

Pacific Wrecks locations details battlefields, airfields and wrecks in over forty nations. As a special feature, we will highlight some of these nations, and how the Pacific War impacts each, and what remains there now.

Territory of Wallis and Futuna
French possession in the South Pacific. Occupied by USMC and US Navy Seabees in March 1942. The Seabee's first major construction work in the Pacific was on Wallis. Today, wartime roads and airfields are still in use.

Diego Garcia
British possession in the Indian Ocean. A 5" naval gun and a RAF Catalina that grounded in 1944 remain on the island today.
