On this day: A soldier’s visit home in 1941

This photograph was taken in the Australian city of Brisbane, Queensland on the 21st of November, 1941. A soldier returns home to visit his family from his posting in Darwin.

Darwin was bombed by the Japanese three months later, in what was the biggest attack ever launched on Australia by a foreign power.
