The surrender of Japanese suicide boat pilots.<br />
<br />
A remarkable photo album showing the brutal aftermath of Kamikaze attacks and crash landings on Allied aircraft carriers in the Second World War has been uncovered after 70 years.<br />
<br />
The 112 original photographs of the Royal Navy Pacific Fleet in 1945 include a host of images showing the flaming wreckage of Japanese planes that were deliberately flown into the superstructure of ships by suicidal pilots.<br />
<br />
There are also harrowing photos of US fighter planes bursting into flames on landing on the flight deck as well as one crashing into the sea.<br />
<br />
The album is being sold by Brightwells Auctioneers in Herefordshire.
