The Japanese went left hand down and headed straight into Singkawang.


Yes, I noticed that two turns in a row..sudden direction changes. I think they are purposely giving us the ol' Jimmy leg move. Either they are changing orders each turn or using waypoints as their TF's don't take the AI plot.

I think they would have done well to go after Palembang early. Clearly the RAF is not much of a threat and the Dutch Uglofortresses seem pretty well neutered as well. Even the B-17's are lucky to hit anything with 45-50 experience pilots.

**************Dec, 22, 1941***************


Luzon: The Jap force at Bayombang increased substantially and now includes 47th Infantry Regt., the very aloof Tanaka Detachment, 48th Recon. Regt., 4th Tank Regt., Sasebo 1st SNLF and no less than 5 artillery units! They attacked before the two PS Bn's got clear. Some of pack howitzers were lost in the retreat but the casualties were about even. The Jap armor did not pursue so I will try to get everyone back to Clark for rest.

Clark airbase is almost completley repaired. I can move the P-40's from Manila is I have to. Clark is halfway to a level 2 fort. Bataan is halfway to level 3.

Effete, overindulgent, underpigmented oppressor of brown-skinned peoples #1: <crouches to bowl> I say, did you hear Hong Kong fell?

Effete, overindulgent, underpigmented oppressor of brown-skinned peoples #2: <sipping tea from white wicker chair> Oh, bloody Hell! Poor bastards. The place was indefensible, really.

Effete, overindulgent, underpigmented oppressor of brown-skinned peoples #1: Indeed. I'd like to see the little yellow bastards try that here.

Effete, overindulgent, underpigmented oppressor of brown-skinned peoples #2: Hahahahaha. Yes, a taste of Sheffield steel, that is what they will get.

Effete, overindulgent, underpigmented oppressor of brown-skinned peoples #1: Heheheheheheh....


OK..I corrected the spelling of "overindulgent". Odds are somethig else is wrong but do try to have some class and don't say anything.

OK..the second guy is not actually sipping the tea from the wicker chair. That would be stupid. It would all leak through and be bad for the chair. Plus, I could not warrant how it would taste either. In point of fact he is sitting in the chair while sipping the tea.

"Sheffield steel". There lies the problem. Clearly what they are lacking is some Toledo steel, the finest medieval weapon grade steel available. Maybe that TF which you plan on running through the Straits of Cortez, could deliver some Toledo steel. I'm sure that Hernan found the Toledo steel useful when he started to run out of ammo in Mexico City.

I blame the silly hats. Sure, tradition is important and all, but you can see the darn thing sticking up even when the wearer is behind cover. They just scream "SHOOT HERE" to snipers.

23/12.

The day in bed seems to have done the Crabs some good. Looks like the dog and pony show at Singkawang was a bit of a smokescreen as many more units continue on to Palembang, but!

CA Ashigara, Bomb hits 4, on fire
DD Matsukaze, Bomb hits 1, on fire

and then:
BB Mutsu, Bomb hits 2
xAK Yamagata Maru, Bomb hits 2, heavy fires, heavy damage
xAK Asahisan Maru, Bomb hits 1, heavy fires
xAKL Kiko Maru, Bomb hits 2, heavy fires, heavy damage
with
652 casualties reported

And the the attack on Singkawang goes pear-shaped too:
Japanese ground losses:
184 casualties reported
Squads: 0 destroyed, 14 disabled
Non Combat: 0 destroyed, 14 disabled
Engineers: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled


Allied ground losses:
91 casualties reported
Squads: 0 destroyed, 6 disabled
Non Combat: 0 destroyed, 10 disabled
Engineers: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled

Meanwhile more IJN units spotted swanning about to the north of Ambon. Their purpose still remains a mystery.

I say! Jolly good show from those crabs! Splendid, simply splendid! Anyone for tennis?

Sprior-were those aviators attacking from bases in Singapore?

Yes they were rom Singers. WEe just had the first fighter sweep over the city so we're expecting some bombers soon.

I'm surprised to see that casual days weren't included on the list. According to my last employer, it was a great way to squeeze that extra ounce of productivity out of an already overworked staff.

The sky is blackened with Uglofortresses and you guys want a free dress day for one near miss? Really? [:'(]

Speaking of motivation, my friend told this story. He got drafted to coach a girl's soccer team...8 yr. olds. [:D] He doesn't know anything about soccer except that it is good to score goals.

Their team is absolutely terrible. The girls are worried about orange slices at half time and their hair ribbons. Nobody stays in position. Nobody wants to play goalie. And then they start asking to be taken out during the game. [:D] Were are talking severe motivational deficiency. He and the other dad helping him coach have a confab and come up with an incentive program. They offer a $5 bill to any girl who scores a goal. It works like magic. They turn into maniacal demons on the field..headers..sliding tackles..charging the goalie. Utter abandonment. They feel no pain. They have no fear. They are like a bunch of 8 yr olds on PCP. They crush the next team they play. Of course, the other teams can sense they are up against mad dogs. They win 3 straight and then the story gets to the league President. They are severely chastised and are barred from coaching in the league in the future. Problem solved.








Cap Mandrake -> Palembang (2/9/2010 6:23:41 PM)

Ironically, the aggression toward the Jap planned landing at Kendari has resulted in well escorted Jap landings.

Cap Mandrake -> The Celebes (2/9/2010 7:21:20 PM)

Ryujo and friends are operating off the Celebes, perhaps as a testing of the waters before another go at Kendari. The US carriers (Lexington and Enterprise) are about 300 miles SE of the Torres Strait moving toward Timor. They are apparently unspotted. I have asked for volunteers among the fleeing Fillipino tramp steamers to steer close to the West coast of Sulawese as bait to draw Ryujo further South.

Admiral Halsy is about to wet himself with excitement.
