Today marks a sad day in Australian history, it was on this day in 1942 that 242 Japanese aircraft bombed Darwin in two separate attacks, killing more than 240 people.

A special service was held in Darwin on Tuesday morning and a plaque was unveiled overnight in honor of two RAAF squadrons.

“To their credit, most of the people who flew those airplanes, never came back to Darwin because they died during the battles,” Lord Mayor of Darwin, Kon Vatskalis told 6PR Breakfast.
