Red Spots Over Darwin

Simmone Croft

Published to commemorate the first bombing raid on Darwin, Red Spots Over Darwin is the compelling true story of Henry Milton Scott.

On 19 February 1942, Scott was working atop a telegraph pole and saw the first formation of Japanese planes fly over Darwin. He lost three of his family in the raid, and went on to play an instrumental role in the change from Morse Code to Speaking Circuit. Red spots over Darwin follows Scott's  eventual recovery from the loss of his loved ones, and his significant work for the Post Master General.

Soft cover, photographs, 33 pages.
