804712/28 - SEEK AND STRIKE: 75 Squadron RAAF 1942 - 2002

By David J Wilson.  First Edition, Banner Books, 2002

"75 Squadron was formed in the darkest days of WW2, in March 1942, when Australia had not one fighter squadron in the entire continent, & the Japanese already had attacked Darwin, Broome, the Torres Strait, & Port Moresby, & had captured Rabaul. Kittyhawk fighters from the US supplies were handed over & two weeks after receiving them, 75 Squadron was in action in New Guinea. For 44 days, 75 Squadron flew alone as the sole fighter defence for Port Moresby. Reduced to a single Kittyhawk, 75 withdrew to Australia, re-equipped, & moved to Milne Bay, where, with 76 Squadron, it provided the decisive factor in that historic defeat of the Japanese.
