We've heard from a Navy medical librarian on Guam, who has sent us some historic images for our files. I've sent her a list of what photographs we have (catalogued - there's probably more) on Guam in return, and here's a few highlights. For those who are wondering - we don't alter the captions written on the pictures, so insensitive language from wartime will be found.
