Bill Ennis - Singapore: Japanese aerial domination

Running time
59 sec
Date made
Department of Veterans' Affairs


Well they dominated ... You know there was virtually no opposition to their aircraft. What there was, you know, extremely and utterly brave ... You know to go up against these things.

I've got visions of them flying overhead, 27 of them, you know, all in groups of three. Nines, and three sets of nines. Perfect formation. They were flying over us towards Singapore. Clearly dominated the skies. That was a real plus for them. We were bombed a few times but nothing serious.
