2) Minesweeper crew, assigned to intercept incoming Jap battleships

3) Assignment to a Sea Bee Bn.

If I might say his admin (49) and inspiration (53) are rather low .. once troops/pilots get back from the club they are not going to be inspired to put forth effort on the war ..

99 fatigue, but morale in the 93-94 range? Thank goodness they're Aussie diggers with impenetrable morale! Just think if you'd used medical battalions of depressives, narcoleptics or CFS patients. Or California GOP members...

***************PI Pranning**************

The toe-dipping operation at Legaspi is not going so well. The fast transport taffy did not unload suppries due to its encounter with &#^@**# Kuma. The base has zero suppry. Not one single aviation support point arrived by air transport. None of 3rd Marine Tank Bn has unloaded yet. We lost an LST and 2 AP's without getting anything ashore yet.

I blame the staff.

The good news is the air groups there are in remarkably good morale and with only about 30% disabled airframes.

The "main body" will pull back a bit more toward Butuan (Mindanao) and we will try to get the APD's in there. The remaining LST and LCT's at Legaspi should unload tonight (I hope) and then they can beat feet back toward Surigao.

Cagayn is now level 5. We bring up the resting B-24's at Saumlaki and go after Clark today.

The CV's/CVE's arriving off Western Mindanao today. IJN carriers have disappeared. Maybe they are heading around to the Eastern shore of Luzon or they just bugged out.

They'd be even more potent if you had the other 18% of the unit. I assume that was just destroyed outright and hasn't yet been rebuilt, Lord Admiral?

Nope. It's from the Imperial War Museum Duxford. Some Commonwealth unit I am pretty sure.

Just watched Argo last night. Fantastic film. Loved the Alan Arkin character. I can see why the Revolutionary Guards were unhappy about their portrayal but it seems to me the depiction of the revolution and embassy seizure were entirely fair. I think those were the most riveting crowd scenes I have ever scene on film. After the embassy attack I wanted to bomb something. That's why we are going after Clark Field today.
