Photo #: NH 104962
Hagushi Beaches, Okinawa
Intelligence mosaic assembled from oblique photographs taken during the 10 October 1944 carrier raids on Okinawa, showing approximately eight nautical miles of western Okinawa shoreline, running south from the Zampa Misaki ("Point Bolo") at the far left. It was prepared 20 November 1944 by the Photo Interpretation Team, G-2 Section, 10th Army Headquarters. The individual beach identities shown in this mosaic were used during the April 1945 invasion of Okinawa.
Attached at the far right are three photographs of David M. Diamond (1910-1974), two in World War II uniform as a Lieutenant and Lieutenant (Junior Grade) in the U.S. Naval Reserve and one taken later in his life.
