Passive Defense is GO!

Passive defense is now finished and posted under. This section includes the original Passive Defense Handbook 1, a supplement on fuel tank camouflage, the Second Supplement, with more on paint, and for now ends with the third supplement, with instructions for camouflaging airport runways and roads.

Happy 2010

Welcome to the last year of the new millennium! A little surprise for all y'all reading this on a regular basis. Ron Smith was one of a few of us that went looking for information regarding Arizona's final camouflage to assist Don Preul in building a new model of the Battleship Arizona for the Arizona Memorial Visitors' Center. He has now sent me some of his findings, and it turns out one section was an additional part of the Passive Defense Handbook that the Seattle Archives did not have. So I'm going to work on that and finish it before I add any of the other ones, which are now all complete. The new find is only about 5-6 pages long and should not take long to add.

To give you an idea of what is in store, I've got through roughly 2/3 of his first set of documents and I've got 73 pages I've pulled aside to post.
