"Japanese flying boats being destroyed" by Roy Nockolds, Date unknown

Catalogue ref: INF 3/391Links to the Catalogue


An soberly hued anti-Japanese poster, in a pulp-magazine style, depicting Japanese flying boats in the harbour at Port Blair in the Andaman Islands being destroyed by RAF Blenheims. The image was part of a series accompanied by the slogan ‘Smash Japanese aggression!'

The Andaman Islands were first occupied by the Japanese in 1942, and reclaimed by the British in 1945.
