Plane Flying over Solomon Island Site

(Original Caption) Finding our anti aircraft barrage too hot to handle, these Jap torpedo planes tried slipping under the protective curtain to launch their deadly "tin fish" at the vessels supporting U.S. Marines landing on Guadalcanal Island. The Nipponese air offensive in this battle is said to have taken a terrific beating from our antiaircraft fire and fighting planes.
