    Ned Kelly (December 1854 – 11 November 1880) was an Australian bushranger, outlaw, gang leader and convicted police murderer. One of the last bushrangers, and by far the most famous, he is best known for wearing a suit of bullet proof armour during his final shootout with the police.

    Photographed by the members of the Danish resistance."

    Google Translates say "Connect Them".
    "Vi Vil" = "We will."

    Alkoholfri Kultur = Alcohol Free Culture.

    Verdenshoderskab = World Wrath.

    Looks like a temperance campaign poster.

    "A 106-year-old Armenian woman sits in front of her home guarding it with a rifle, in Degh village, near the city of Goris in southern Armenia. Armed conflicts took place in and around nearby Nagarno-Karabakh, a territory in Azerbaijan also claimed by Armenia. The Nagorno-Karabakh War displaced hundreds of thousands of people from their homes."

    Photo shows Corporal Yukio Araki (age 17 years old) holding a puppy with four other young men (age 18 and 19 years old) of the 72nd Shinbu Corps. An Asahi Shimbun cameraman took this photo on the day before the departure of the 72nd Shinbu Corps from Bansei Air Base for their kamikaze mission in Okinawa.


    Yukio Araki became the youngest kamikaze pilot during the Second World War when, at the age of seventeen, he took off from the Bansei Airfield, Kagoshima in a Tachikawa Ki-54 twin-engine training aircraft on 27 May 1945. It has been speculated that his plane was one of two that struck the destroyer USS Braine (DD-630), killing 66 of its crew; however, the ship did not sink. Araki had been home in April 1945, and left letters for his family, to be opened upon the news of his death. The letter to his parents noted: “Please find pleasure in your desire for my loyalty to the Emperor and devotion to parents. I have no regrets. I just go forward on my path”.

    Moffett Field (NAS Sunnydale) maybe? Though I wonder why they would be stuffing planes into a airship hangar on an active ZP installation during the war unless it was one of those ". . . how many do you think we can stuff . . ." stunts.

    Moffett Field I barely remember, I was about 3 when Himself had VX-5 there circa 1955.
