So Pocahantas Gril calls Stalker Gril for advice. It seems Pocahantas Gril got cited for no seat belt.

So she gets cited and calls up Stalker Girl to see if I will sign it, the Pediatrician. I advised SG to tell PG to ask her plastic surgeon. I saw her while I was walking the dogs and pretended to look down at the trail so I wouldn't get stuck in a "curbside consult".

Yesterday, the Tata Bonus did not work.


I presume you explained to SG that ethically there was no way you could provide PG with a medical excuse without first performing a detailed physical exam of the involved anatomy?


What paragons of virtue you physicians are. What upright citizens, conscientious professionals and monolithic stewards of public faith. You stand erect at the pinnacle of society for your stalwart sacrifice.


Huh-huh...huh....huh.....he thaid "erect".....huh-huh...huh....huh.

We have two 6350 ton AE's headed for Gove (which is still a level 0 "port"). Are we going to be able to rearm the 16 inch guns of Washington and Indiana there?

I think somebody answered this in the more general sense but I was drinking at the time and can't remember.

Actually, I just started drinking again so you had better wait till the morning California time...or you could wait about 8 hrs and tell Admiral Lord Sprior. He can be reached at Kandy House, Ceylon. Try to get to him before he starts up on the champagne or Bloody Marys. Happy Christams Eve to all, especially the crew of YMS-101. God bless them all, especially the taffy commander, even if he is somewhat cynical.

Young man in fine linen slacks: Now, I know most of you girls don't know much about Christianity, but this is VERY, VERY important holiday for most of these boys, many of who have been away from home for over a year. It is a time for reflection and familial bonding. Right Idi?

Idi Amin Dada (jack Muslim): Right boss.

Young man in fine linen slacks: Precisely! OK, I've commissioned new Santa hats for all the girls and Christmas themed G-strings and pasties. Check with Anne for your kit and...hey...let's be nice out there.....

If theyre already losses, I'm sure they wont feel a thing.

The better question is why would you want to pad them instead of just burying them? After a few days they'll get real ripe....

Stalker Girl made me watch Breakfast at Tiffanys last night.....and I liked it.

***************Decmeber 25, 1942(c)******************

Port Hedrand: There was a LYB SCTF spotted NW of PH headed SW toward Exmouth so we had a crusier grouop waiting and bombers on naval attack. Problem is the insctrutable LYB's turned SE and hit our shipping at PH. First they shrug off the PT boats.

and then...a clean sweep...and one our our ships is even named after a famous Greek philosopher. I think that was purposely ironic to remind us that Rord Admirar Fabertong uses the ole' jimmy leg move over and over...

Darwin: LCDR Specht has (had?) good reason to be cynical. He has no opportunity to sweep for mines or defeat the guns at Darwin as he is intercepted by Arashio, which I believe was probably one of the two ships spotted at anchor at Darwin.

Night Time Surface Combat, near Darwin at 76,124, Range 11,000 Yards

Japanese Ships
DD Asashio

Allied Ships
SC-637, Shell hits 2, and is sunk
YMS-101, Shell hits 3, and is sunk
YMS-102, Shell hits 2, and is sunk
YMS-115, Shell hits 2, and is sunk
YMS-133


Then USS Permit gets even with Arashio. I don't want to rush to judgement but this looks like it may have been another live torpedo. Most likely it will be another inquiry,

Submarine attack near Darwin at 76,124

Japanese Ships
DD Asashio, Torpedo hits 1, heavy damage

Allied Ships
SS Permit


There are neither sweep attacks nor a raid by B-17's on Darwin. Probably bad weather.

LYB bombers with good escort go after the picket DD's or perhaps the DM's near Bathurst.

Some Sallys (probably from Wyndham) are massacred going after the mine sweeping group at Bathurst.

Wyndham: Naturally, as we all know, as the B-24 is much faster than the P-38 and because it much easier to assemble a raid of 67 planes instead of 5, the B-24's arrive over Wyndham BEFORE the P-38 sweep.

Even so, it is a powerfully effective raid.

Interesting. He's replaced the IJAAF Tojos with land-based A6M series aircraft. Look for the Tojos in bulk nearby. My guess would be that you'll see 'em at Darwin. Perhaps he set his Darwin cap very tightly with range =0, none sortied to defend the Arashio?

Koumac: The USMC Regt. landing at Koumac is disembarking for a second day. They were overpacked but we were short of AP's in NZ. I was worried about an LYB surface raid but there is none.

Burma: JJ moved a "shedload" of fighters to Mandalay. Admiral Lord Sprior cancelled the bomber raid and sent in some Hurris over Shwebo which met the spill over CAP from Mandalay.

This was quite effective resulting in 5 Tojos and 2 Oscars claimed for 1 Hurri.

China: Changsa is really getting hammered by air. Jap troops ar Kienko are cut off.

Hmm, another live torpedo? Sounds like someone was giving the better torpedoes out early to your subs so that they would be in place for the Jan 1943 official activation date, but some of your skippers have decided they just can't wait that long to start using them.

Interesting. He's replaced the IJAAF Tojos with land-based A6M series aircraft. Look for the Tojos in bulk nearby. My guess would be that you'll see 'em at Darwin. Perhaps he set his Darwin cap very tightly with range =0, none sortied to defend the Arashio?


There are definitely Tojos at Darwin...or at least there were for the last several days. Some days back the Tojos replaced the Nicks.

Perhaps also the Darwin CAP was grounded by weather?

My Dearest Spri;

Do we have some fighters with long enough legs to LRCAP over Changsa. JJ is no longer doing fighter sweeps and the LYB raids are unescorted. Good time for an ambush to keep them honest. It looks like a bunch of fighters from China moved to Burma. Looks like the RAF grouop at Chungking might be getting burnt out as well.

Also what about bombers from Ledo going after LYB ground troops in China? I think they may be near their high water mark in China?

Lastly what do we want to do at Darwin. Send in Washington and Indiana to bombard or leave them with ammo for surface combat?

Finally, can we use one of the Australian para coys for Bathurst?
