OSINT gathering encompasses all sources, including old movies filmed years ago with old fashioned home movie cameras. This particular one is a great home movie discovered by a young lady when she discovered the video her father shot, who shot it during a spontaneous Victory Parade in Honolulu in 1945.

Notice the cars and jeeps, the youth. The guys in khaki or gray shirts and black ties are Navy officers or chiefs. The rest are Army or Marine. How young they all were to do what they did. They must be in their nineties now.


This old film captures a moment in history! (You can listen to Jimmy Durante singing "I'll be Seeing You" in the background, too)

OSINT gathering leads to unexpected sources. This is a super video of a time past - we need to remember and be THANKFUL. Check out the color fidelity. It's not bad for 1945. Nothing will ever compare with Kodachrome film. The sound track except for Jimmy Durant also sounds authentic. That is in itself unusual for a home movie from 1945. Few could afford sound with their cameras. Click HERE to view it.
