Just like Japan during WW2

Just like Japan during WW2

I was in Townsville in 1974, and I remember when it came on the news. I was Born in Darwin June 1966. and every Christmas, I still brings tears to my eyes. Even when I hear the song: Santa Never Made It In to Darwin, I recall the events after Cyclone Tracy Hit Darwin, as my Dad was in the Army (Signal Corp)and they had to go to Darwin to help!

Note: I couldn't find a photo, so I borrowed's photo.
