The Thompsons had a wind up Cine-Kodak Magazine 16 Camera, and shot a lot of film while in the Marshall Islands.
Cmdr. Hugh Blanchard Vickery visited Kwajalein several times. He talked (then) Capt. Thompson into getting a color camera, and told him to shoot everything. Cmdr. Vickery brought the camera to Kwajalein from Hawaii, we think in 1951. He is the man with briefcase in film @ 11:57.
