JOHN HAGEN COLOUR 1942 - 1943
Mr. John Hagen was a member of the US Army 164th Infantry Regiment.During his time on Guadalcanal he took unique colour footage with his 8mm camera. Any Guadalcanal colour is extremely rare. Over 2.5 hours of 16mm colour was shot by Marine cameramen in 1942, but sadly for posterity it was all lost in transit back to the States.
These still photos from his footage are courtesy of the Hagen Family and the North West Minnesota Historical Society, Minnesota State University, Moorhead.
