Osaka Castle
Mission 224
Page 4

 

Osaka Castle is easily located in the two aerial photos and the B-29's would have been flying from lower left to upper right .

There is a white arrow in the second photo that is not in the original. This is my edit to show where the Sanadayma Military Cemetery may be located.

The chart at the bottom of this page is one section of a page too large to be scanned as a single sheet. On there the line(s) in red detailed the route that the B-29s were to fly to and from Osaka.
