Title: Loaded Deck for Saidor Landing
Description: Elevated view of the loaded deck of a LST (Landing Ship, Tank) on the way from Goodenough Island to Saidor, New Guinea (present day Papua New Guinea). On the deck are many soldiers, jeeps, trucks, artillery and supplies. Tanks were probably in the hold of the ship. Another warship is in the distance. Robert Doyle wrote a caption for this image although it was not published at that time: "Packed with vehicles and soldiers, landing ship heads north for assault on Saidor, New Guinea, by task force consisting mainly of elements of Thirty-second Division. Landing was made at Saidor Jan. 2."
