From August 1944 to January 1945, the F4U Corsairs of VMF-225 participated in many combat operations in the New Hebrides Islands. The album is packed full of fantastic photo's of these F4U Corsair planes, including a phenomenal group photo! Total photo's exceed well over 100, and also included are several loose photo's.
