Photo Exhibit Captures World War II Images

By Leland Kim

WAIKIKI (KHNL) -  A photo exhibit captures a snapshot of World War II that most people haven't seen and it's on display at the U.S. Army Museum. 

These photographs were taken during the height of the war at New Caledonia, an island southwest of Hawaii, and near Fiji and the Solomon Islands.

An army solider named Elmer Williams snapped these pictures when he was stationed there between 1944 and 1945.

"The family has shared their photographs and memorabilia of their father's time, and it's been a very special privilege to have this here," said Museum Director, Gail Fuller.

There are 475 photos in all.

They are on loan from the University of Queensland in Australia.

The exhibit will be on display until May 4th.
