Caption Reads: Two champs meet in the Pacific: Two heavyweight champions meet at a Pacific base when ex-champ Capt. Jim Braddock autographs the famous U.S. Army 7th Air Force 100-mission Liberator, LIL' AUDREY. The veteran bomber, which has flown 343,000 miles and has dropped 416,000 pounds of bombs on Jap targets across the Pacific, is on her way to the States where she will tour the combat crew training centers. Capt. Braddock is shaking hands with the pilot, Lt. Francis Pouls, Pasadena, CA.
