Something To Look At (Post#17) : Broome’s One Day War

Photo of the day is about “Broome’s One Day War” story. During World War II, Broome also suffered catastrophic event.  There was a day in the town wherein 9 of Japanese Mitsubishi Zero fighters arrived at Roebuck Bay and attacked boats moored in the bay. It also targeted nearby airstrip where several aircraft destroyed. In the end, Japanese did not leave single aircraft that was operational, though Broome tried to fight back only to damaged one Japanese fighter and one on its way home. The tremendous effect of what Japanese did in the town was visible and many people died. In my opinion, another reason why Japanese attacks Broome was most likely the intelligence report they received that Japanese were interned when Australia decided to join Allied forces to fight back Japan during World War II and as we knew that the town has lots of Japanese works in Broome’s Pearling Industry. The photo is part of Broome Historical Museum Visit October 2016.
