TOWNSVILLE BOMB DISPOSAL UNIT RAAF
IN AUSTRALIA DURING WW2

 

The first RAAF Bomb Disposal course was held in April 1942 with 3 officers and approximately 24 airmen on the course. A number of Bomb Disposal Units were initially formed at Darwin, Port Moresby and Townsville.

Presumably this Bomb Disposal Unit would have been involved in recovering some of the Japanese bombs dropped during the 3 bombing raids on Townsville.

 

Can anyone help me with more information?
