The latest offer from the Apaches is a hot dog stand at Tempe stadium and 20 Winchester repeating rifles. Still too high. Looks like Admirar Rord Nerson will be staying with the Apache for a while longer.

The situation as of Dec. 26. No sign of Musashi or the LYB carriers. Extra PBY's to Gove so they don't sneak up on us again...maybe.

Wyndham is still dangerous and we will be within range of Koepang with Zero escort today. Still, we cant sit around on our thumbs forever. The defeat of Yamato is a big relief.

I'd feel a whole lot better about your incoming amphibious group if you could tell me something about Timor and your broad Northern flank. Any last minute recon on Lautem, Koepang or other SW DEI IJ FOBs?

Maybe they are still sore about our sharpshooters targeting their officers at Saratoga? It was a bit unchivalrous, although entirely justified with that stupid tea tarrif, if you ask me.

I predict he will either pretend he didn't see the question or pretend he didn't know or pehaps use something scripted like, "Her Majesty government declines to disclose that information"

The PB4Y's were supposed to fly over Koepang yesterday. I don't think it happened...weather...union work stoppage? I am having trouble keeping the damn things in the air. Dobo was supposed to be operational by now but that didnt quite work out as planned.

Lautem is only level 1. I think the crusier group near Babar came from Kendari. Sorong and Ambon only have submarine pickets. There are 3 Catalinas at Merauke. I realize that is skimpy but Merauke is packed with B-17's. It is, after all still 1942 and we have been pushing hard for some time. We are essentially out of opeartional P-38's, Beaufighters, and have dwindling numbers of B-17's. In retrospect, I might have sent a surface picket up toward Dobo.

There is a planned smackdown of Wyndham today but the raid yesterday got weather scrubbbed. There is significant risk to this but the payoff could be big.

****************18:00 Dec 26-18:00 Dec 17************


Darwin/Bathurst: Previosu reports of no minefield at Darwin were erroneous. Also, Oyoshio is snooping around on a suicide mission...but lives to fight another day.

TF 392 encounters mine field at Darwin (76,124)

Apparently, Oyoshio tries to exit to the West and runs into USS Kane trying to do the squat and run.

Don't know if the squat protion of the mission was a success. The "run" part was executed flawlessly.

Next Oyoshio is back at Darwin and USS Montgomery is trying to run East.

Just noticed it's Oyashio not Oyoshio. Maybe there are two of them. Thankfully, at least one seem out of ammo.

Here come the LYB's. They go after the Amphibious Group. Not very good CAP bleed-over from the carriers to the N. The Beaufighters and soem the F4F's are from Gove. I suspect the attack came from Kopeang but not sure where the Oscars came from. Not sure who was aboard Rodham Coleman either.

Here come the balsa wood (impregnated with gasoline) Nells. Good escort but there is a serious CAP too. They go after Irrustrious which is supposed to be back in Gibraltar in a spell. Whew! Admiral Lord SPrior would have had some 'splaining to do.

Huh? Darwin? Darwin? Hory Crap! The 8th Marine Def Bn. did not get the memo. They were in a separate TF from Horn Is. Doh! When we find out who is responsible for this there will be a very stern talking-to...I promise.

Pre-Invasion action off Darwin (76,124)
Defensive Guns engage approaching landing force

42 Coastal gun shots fired in defense.

Allied Ships
SC-517
xAK Somelsdijk, Shell hits 1



SC-517 fired at enemy troops
10cm T14 AA Gun battery firing at xAK Somelsdijk
75mm T90 Field Gun battery firing at xAK Somelsdijk
75mm Infantry Gun battery firing at xAK Somelsdijk


The Imperiar Command will think we did this on purpose.

Serious intel on the LYB forces at Darwin

Ground combat at Darwin (76,124)

Japanese Bombardment attack

Attacking force 13294 troops, 116 guns, 52 vehicles, Assault Value = 556

Defending force 104 troops, 0 guns, 0 vehicles, Assault Value = 11


Allied ground losses:
11 casualties reported
Squads: 0 destroyed, 3 disabled
Non Combat: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled
Engineers: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled


Assaulting units:
21st Ind.Mixed Brigade
38th/A Division
18th Tank Regiment
4th Engineer Co
38th/B Division
22nd Ind.AA Gun Co
53rd JNAF AF Unit
107th JAAF AF Bn
52nd JNAF AF Unit
5th Div /2

Defending units:
8th Marine Def Bn /1


So that is 2 regiments of 38th Div, an independant brigade and some Ronsons.

"Paging Dr. Larry, paging Dr. Moe, paging Dr. Curly"

The Torres St. Bn Arrives at Bathurst without opposition and promptly falls onto the punji sticks set out by Fr. O'Brien.

They are so shocked by the opposition, they forget to attack. Bathurst remains in the caring hands of the Catholic Church.

So it turns out JJ has more dedicated combat troops at Katherine than they do at Darwin. Seems to me that means the plan worked...so far*.


* Except for the part about the coastal defence guns and AA troops landing a day earlier than the rest of the 85K.

Hi Cap,

There is one thing u and the Birthday child might wana consider. Cuz of the early "scouting" in Darwin and jap gets a chance to attack there next turn. That could have the consequence that if u unload in next turn, but only "partially or what ever u might be exposed to an attack with high disruption cuz of unloading. So if u get a partial unload u might get defeated in detail.

This isnt a certain thing, depending on if he tries to attack, u unload capacity and so on. There could be merit in not unloading in the next turn, but there are dangers in it too so its not a clear cut thing. It could even work too ur advantage if he attacks and u get lots of AV offloaded. Just wanted to give a heads up.

Kind regards,

Rasmus

I have experienced that invasion interruptis attack thingy. In a Marianas Scenario as Japan, the Arries were stumbling ashore chaotically (or at least it seemed that way) and had only a small number of troops ashore. I ordered a shock attack by the entire garrison but by the time of the attack there were thousands of Marines ashore and it was a disaster.

Hmmm...yes. Seems as I recall something like that happening too.

The invasion interruptus defense must not be defended in depth to be effective.

I'm thinking the opposite. If enough troops get ashore in good enough condition, plus the Imperials are disrupted by air attacks, then an Imperial attack could be disastrous for the Empire.
