YE-ZB Chart, New Hebrides

Marine Corps Corsair pilot Lt. Reinhardt Leu used this YE-ZB chart in 1943. Though it was intended for aircraft carrier use, Leu used this one in the New Hebrides islands of the South Pacific. The code letters were changed on a daily basis, so if a ZB receiver with the code sheet was captured, it would be of no use.
