    Staff Sergeant Victor Pizzuto, a ball-turret gunner in a Liberator bomber based in the Marshall Islands, was astonished when his strafing fire on what he took to be a Japanese power station at Jaluit, suddenly blew it sky high in a spectacular explosion. At first he thought some other aircraft had bombed the building but it turned out that he had hit the jackpot. With a few well aimed rounds of machine-gun fire, he had single handedly taken out a massive high powered ammunition and explosives dump!
