This is an edited sound recording of Ric Havyatt, former Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) bomb disposal officer during the Second World War (1939-45), describing the way Japanese planes bombed Darwin in the Northern Territory in 1942-43, and how some bombs did not explode, as designed, on impact. He tells how some unexploded bombs landed on their sides, while others went nose-first 2-4 m underground from where they had to be dug up. The recording was made in April 2008 and lasts for 2 minutes 16 seconds.
