Maybe we should just scuttle the stupid thing.

I hate to give game advice in this AAR but ...
send any ship to meet S18 and re-fuel. Any AKL or Amc will do.



Unfortunately, the game engine doesn't allow any sub refuelling at sea, even from another sub or an AO.
However, they are tough, and it takes a long time to accumulate 100 system damage, so the dry sub's tow dinghy should get them to base in 22 days!

Eminently sensible and vastly superior to rowing the damn thing to Coal Harbour..except it won't work. You can't refuel subs from another ship, even an AO.

You are correct but you can have them meet at the nearest base or dot hex

I suggest investment in 1944 Kamikaze loss futures.
I like my steak at least 3/4" thick and medium-rare please.

(Side note; Did that leaflet say "poopcorn"? )

I would propose selling Atoll Derivates with possible leverage effects. The idea would be getting people to invest in Atoll estates on the cheap. They would finance some USN SeeBees to build it up to prime estate meaning you get leverage in your PI campaign. The investors would get their fully built prime estate back after the war, thereby getting their own Holiday island with an airfield and/or a pier. That's their leverage.

Do I even know what I'm talking about or even in which war? I'm so confused ...

Absolutely terrible idea. Yamashita will be working as a sushi chef in Long Beach by then. Your steak will be 1/3 inch blackened shoe leather with a fine diesel marinade.

No thanks Cap. Had enough of the blackened , vaguely animal tissue when I was in the military and at Scout camps with cooks who had never used a campfire.

The solution to that are the Omaha Steaks marinated tri-tips. You can get 'em at Costco. There are about 3 inches thick. You could steak them to the ground about 1 km from a neutron bomb and they would be crispy on the outside but nice and red on the inside. Absorutery dericious. I once fed them to a bunch of Villanova football players and other jock types. The rule of thumb for caterers is 1/3rd pound of beef for women, 1/2 lb for men. Phhht. Not even close. Fortuantely I had about 20 lbs of pork loin or I would have had to use the Verey pistol.

Oh wait, you mean Arthur Jr? No, he passed in 1912(c). I think Jean means Arthur IV. On several occaisions in Manila he ate the dog's food so Jean is rightly concerned he might go for the poopcorn.

Cagayan and environs: Massively annoying Kuma comes in from the NW, somehow manages to avoid the picket ships and subs on the likely ingress routes and catches a troop convoy before they reach Cagayan. D'oh! I think this was 21st Marine Regt but I'm not sure. I toyed with the idea of sedning them back to Cotobato to unload but decided the port was too small. The taffy was only 80 miles from Cagayan at nightfall. They were specifically told not to stop to watch the flying fish. D'oh!

Night Time Surface Combat, near Cagayan at 79,88, Range 1,000 Yards

Japanese Ships
CL Kuma

Allied Ships
SC-739, Shell hits 1
SC-749, Shell hits 3, on fire
xAP John C. Calhoun, Shell hits 3, on fire
xAP John Hart, Shell hits 10, Torpedo hits 2, and is sunk


Allied ground losses:
652 casualties reported
Squads: 23 destroyed, 12 disabled
Non Combat: 60 destroyed, 32 disabled
Engineers: 0 destroyed, 0 disabled
Guns lost 55 (38 destroyed, 17 disabled)
Vehicles lost 10 (10 destroyed, 0 disabled)


Kuma proceeds to Cagayan. This part was anticipated. She meets Oakland. Seems like we could have finsihed her here. How could Oakland NOT have radar at this point? Did I miss an upgrade? Somebody sold the vacuum tubes? Gaak.

Night Time Surface Combat, near Cagayan at 79,89, Range 1,000 Yards

Japanese Ships
CL Kuma, Shell hits 6

Allied Ships
CLAA Oakland, Shell hits 1
DD Lansdowne
DD Woodworth
DD Perkins
DD Thracian



Reduced visibility due to Rain with 35% moonlight

CL Kuma engages DD Woodworth at 1,000 yards

Then Kuma turns tail and runs into one of the pickets on her egress. She also somehow manages to avoid the attention of the 30 SBD's at Cagayan. Probably the rain.

Day Time Surface Combat, near Cebu at 80,87, Range 8,000 Yards

Japanese Ships

Damned annoying. Spotted her on the way in, put up defenses and she STILL managed to slip through. JJ discovered Crisco.

When our electronic medical record thingy breaks down at work they send us an email (powered by the same server network) to tell us it's not working.

Tiny, lean, young (oh Hell she's cute, there I said it, you happy?) Mexican mom: <in Spanish> Aj, doctor, she no eat.

FAM: <I show her the growth curve, the baby looks just like mom, the dad's 5 4, I do the mid parental height estimate, discuss genetics, review population variation, I purposely do not mention the Mayans because she is from the Mexican upper class and it would piss her off...I am getting nowhere...finally, in desperation>

Look, Senora, when she grows up I'm sure she will be just as fat as you.

Restrained admiration for a well-played attack by the Shinto Boys is permitted. Open rooting for the Little Yellow Baaahstards is a Cornfield offense.


That transport sunk by Kuma in fact carried troops of 11th Marine Def Bn. I would say about 1/3rd of Bn lost, 1/3rd of Bn disabled (aboard the other ship in the convoy) and 1/3rd ready to fight. 21st Marine got ashore at Cagayan safely.

It looks like 1 of the 3 regiments at Davao needs a rest. The other two can mount a regular attack today.

ORIGINAL: Cap Mandrake

So I'm at the hospital yesterday writing an electronic note at a thin client station by a window (by ra way, their system is so vastly superior to the POS we use in the office it's like QE II vs Pinta).

It's raining outside and I can see down to a smoking area outside the building. There is a little table with a sun shade but it's not doing it because the problem is not the sun. There are patients (all women) down their in their hospital gowns shivering in soggy blankets trying to take a couple of drags on their cigaretters. Most of them are holding their cigarettes with their IV board hands so they can hold the blanket with the other. It is REALLY pitiful.

It looks like a friggin' gulag. The boys at Club Gitmo are treated better. We have definitely gone off the deep end on persecution of smokers.


Just catching up on the AAR, saw this and can add another story:

So a guy I know is trying to give up smoking, and has started using the 'electronic cigarettes' - all the familiarity of smoking, including fake smoke, but none of the nasty stuff. He is really trying to quit but guess what, the Health & Safety crowd and Whitehall Mandarins have a policy for these -

he is only allowed to use them standing outside in the designated smoking shelter area - with all the real smokers

HM Government logic and bureacracy at it's best
