    Seeking images of US radar stations in Fiji

    Jone Niukula Newbie

      The war didn't really reach Fiji but there were NZ and US radar stations that were set up in Fiji during the war in preparation for possible Japanese invasions.  I need images from US radar stations in Fiji during WWII please!!!!
