Japanese Surrender, Betty Bomber lands on Ie Shima 1945 WW2
Picture from Jim Walker


I was on the LST 979 at Ie Shima. We were loaded and ready to make the Invasion of the Mainland when the A-Bomb was dropped. I wrote notes while listening to the pilots direct the Jap Betty Bombers in the land. I have pictures of the Jap officers sitting under the wing of their plane while waiting for the paper work. I also have a picture of their pilot standing on the wing of the Betty.   We were to carry engineers in on the third wave. Our Skipper told us we would probably all be dead because they expected to lose the best part of ten waves to take the beach.  I wont forget those days. I was a Radioman.  I also was on board the LST 1019 at the Invasion of Southern France before being transferred off.  I am now 81. I was 18 when at France.
