Ascension Island

These pictures come from an aerial survey undertaken by the United States of Ascension Island, completed in 1945/6. It details the changes that took place on the Island during the War - notably the defence positions and the airstrip at Wideawake Field, which was a vital link in the supply of aircraft from America during the War. Ascension was the central point in the South Atlantic Ferry Route.
