Vol. 2 No. 36 ……. Bad weather sometimes descends on tiny Ie Shima while her skies are full of planes returning from Japan; and communications officers have a man-sized job on their hands, directing the sky traffic in to safe landings. This week’s cover shows Lt Harold Talbot of Melrose. Mass.. communications officer of a P-61 group, perched on the hood of a radio jeep, “talking in” one of his night fighters during a Ryukyus rain squall. Beside him is the biscuit gun sometimes used for signaling when radio communications go haywire. Photo by BRIEF staff photographer Cpl Harold Klee.
