Jugdement in Darwin, Japanese War Crimes Trials, Darwin 1946.
It is not commonly known that shortly after the cessation of hostilities in World War Two, 19 Japanese military personnel were tried in Darwin for war crimes perpetrated against Allied service personnel. The trials, conducted in the Officers’ Mess, Larrakeyah Army Base between March and April 1946, covered war crimes carried out on the island of Timor between 1943 and 1945 and were the only such trials conducted on Australian soil.
