New Britain. Perfect co-operation between air, sea and land forces was a feature of the landing at Arawe which was perfectly planned and admirably executed. The Allied air arm pounded Japanese positions for days prior to the assault and gave 'cover' throughout the operation. A Liberator aircraft is returning from its mission of bombing Japanese positions on the island and passes over a landing craft. The number on the landing craft has been whited out by the censor.
