Map of Dublon Island Target Area D-10
"This area included much of the Dublon Town and was filled with priority targets; it was dominated by warehouses and small boat facilitates. Ravetted or reinforced buildings were conspicuously absent. Target analysis recommends the use of incendiaries in bombing this section as most construction was frame with many old residences and business establishments present. Fire fighting facilities were estimated to be inadequate. Pilots were encouraged to look for small boats afloat or laid up ashore along the waterfront for strafing targets. Target area D-10 was assigned a priority 8 during Operation Hailstone strikes."
