295. Yamahota Raid Photograph.

One of the most Daring and successful raids during WW2.

On April 13,1943,the US Navy broke the Japanese code and learned that
Admiral Yamamoto planned to inspect his Troops on the Island of
Bougainville the 18th of April, giving the exact time of arrival and with an
escort of 6 Fighter Planes.

The US Navy did not have any Fighter Planes with the range to fly to
Bougainville and back, so the Mission fell to the Army Air Forces 339th
Fighter Squadron based at Henderson Field on Guadalcanal, and the
Squadrons P-38 led by Major John Mitchell.

Mitchell with 16 P-38's flew the 436 miles to Bougainville and caught Admiral
Yamamoto's plane as it was about to land. Yamamoto's plane was shot down
and he was killed and another plane with his Staff was shot down also.The
incident was kept quite untill after the war ,so as not to alert the Japanese
that we had broken their Code.

Signed by Nine of the surviving Pilots. These are guaranteed original
Signatures.I picked this up at the 1999 Reunion of the 347 Fgt. Group at
Biloxi Mississippi when my son and I were Guests at the Reunion.

Also included is an article in Kings Cliff (20th Fighter Group Magazine) on
the raid written by George Chandler, P-38 Ace in the 339th Fgt. Sqd. Photo

Great photo.
