Notes

A small collection of material documenting pilot training and service during World War Two, concluding with combat duty in India and Burma. The miniature format photographs are largely scenes on or around the unit's base in India, and although small reveal considerable detail when viewed under a lens. The larger images include Shew and his colleague Ed Ward in their P-47 Thunderbolt "Dumbo", annotated verso including a note explaining how Ward ended up "marooned" in Agra after he struck a vulture. Unusual and interesting.
