Personal photos from the Pacific (WWII)
July 5, 2008 2:05 PM   Subscribe

According to the photographer's daughter, "All photos in this collection were taken by then Lt. and later Capt. George S. White, my Father, while he was serving in the Pacific as a pilot. They are generally between 1945 and 1948 from what is documented." My favorites? The barmaid or postwar Tokyo or wrecked planes and airplane graveyards.

That barmaid looks straight out of central casting.

My grandfather took a couple of pics while he was stationed in the Philippines around that time.

My favorite pic of his was taken right before he shipped out, however.
