Full Description

While on the home front most of us were taking it easy for four days over Easter. Americans, Fijians and some New Zealanders were fighting the Japanese in the shell-blasted swamps and jungle of Bougainville Island. Though the 3rd. N.Z. Division was already established 150 miles to the north on Nissan Island, the Japanese cut off on Bougainville were still fighting desperately. These grim pictures were taken under fire by a N.Z. National Film Unit Cameraman. We show them to remind you that the troops sweating and dying in the jungle will not easily understand or forgive any slacking on the home front. Warships bombard the coast of a tropic island, the troops swarm over the beaches, and push inland against the Japanese. We join a Fijian patrol and fight a fierce action at close quarters in the jungle until our main force comes up and blasts the enemy pillboxes with grenades and flame throwers.
