Booklet 10: Camp Yeronga
Brisbane – WW2 v Now Photo Booklets...From An American Archives' Photo Viewpoint

Major construction Base 3 Engineers. Here is aerial view of new US Army Camp at Yeronga Park, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. 23 May 1943.

Note the 'zig-zag' slit trenches bottom right by the Bowls Club. The SES (State Emergency Service) now occupies the once suburban Fire Brigade Station at the corner of Ipswich and School Roads.

The wartime US flag pole is gone but the 'chess board' survives.
