Cleanup on Isle Three!

As of this post my Seattle NARA directory totals 4,853 images scanned in; photos and textual records. My San Francisco NARA directory is a mere 1,799 images (totaling roughly 61 gigabytes). The point of this is that with that much data there's bound to be stuff that winds up where it shouldn't from time to time.

I found an orphaned directory yesterday that had some 1945 Camouflage documents that I had not posted... they're very similar to others, but contain some more information that might be useful. Since they were so similar I was able to pop both of them online yesterday. I'd already "roadmapped" both this and next month's updates so I'm just popping mention of them here. Without further ado, I bring you:

  • February 1945: Camouflage Measures 12, 21 and 22 - Instructions for Application of

  • February 1945: Amphibious Craft - Camouflage Measures.

  • Next month's updates will have a "action Damage Report" for USS Shaw following the attack on Pearl Harbor and a 1938 document regarding beach landings and "surf training" authored in part by one 1st Lt. Krulak. Both are done and are just waiting with baited breath for the month of July to start.
