Booklet 16: Japanese POW Camp, Gaythorne
Brisbane – WW2 v Now Photo Booklets...From An American Archives' Photo Viewpoint

Two Japanese POWs busily engaged in the construction of model airplanes at the POW and Internment Camp, Gaythorne, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Upon completion, the planes will be turned over to the American Red Cross. 14 March 1945.

The models are of the American Douglas A-20 'Havoc', a twin-engine light attack bomber. I wonder if any of these models survive now!
