Port (Left) Side - Character from "Sad Sack Comics" (Creator - George Baker)

Info Contributor - James A. Leddy
Caption Reads: "The formidable coast line of Japanese Chichi Jima forms a backdrop for the 7th AAF Liberator flying just above the ocean on a Bonin Island shipping raid. Regular Liberator shipping strikes are helping to keep the Japanese bottled up north of the Marianas, ease resistance for the Superforts."

Info Contributor - Marvin Shapiro (Navigator)
"Caption is wrong! The background is not Chichi Jima. It was Ha-Ha Jima. I was the Navigator on the plane and I am in the waist window manning guns. Our crew's SOP approaching target on the way to drop mines in the harbor."
