Item Description: Catalina Publications, Swan Hill Victoria, 1995. 1st ed., 1995. h/c + d/j, 25x18.5cm, 296 pages with 155 illustrations (including maps and documents) plus colour plates, index, stain on side ledge, light d/j edge wear, several small d/j scuffs, general wear. "With the swift incursion of Japanese forces, 1941 early 1942 into South pacific and South East Asian areas, the shock bombing of Darwin, and the total destruction of flying boats and land based aircraft at Broome, both the RAAF and Qantas were desperate to find a secrete, southern, inland body of water where they could conceal and service their surviving flying boats. Lake Boga was quickly chosen. Construction of facilities commenced. Almost 1000 RAAF and WAAAF personnel were soon stationed at No. 1 Flying Boat Repair Depot, restoring RAAF Catalina, Dornier, and Martin Mariner flying boats. Having escaped the Japanese invasion of Java (Indonesia), Dutch aircraft and crews arrived, followed in mid 1943 by numbers of US Navy personnel with their 'Black Cats,' then, US Army Air Force Catalina's and crews. This intriguing story encompasses circumstances surrounding the establishment of this RAAF facility, flying boat operations, and Depot life. Readers will fly on night time operations of 20 hour duration, bombing and strafing the enemy, and on dangerous mining missions flown at masthead height. Logistical operations flown by transport aircraft are included. The reader will return to Lake Boga and discover what was achieved by dedicated personnel, living and working under difficult conditions and learn of local community support of RAAF, WAAAF, and visiting aircrew in war time.
