************April 17, 1943(c)*************

Man that turn took us a while and I was a big part. There must be 15 amphibious or landing craft taffys swarming all over the PI's. It was pretty obvious JJ had stoked up their aircraft on Luzon so I had to move aircraft and task forces around....and then there was the HOA and the letter explaining the harmless JPG I sent......honestly, wow, talk about miscommunication...whoever voiced the opinion that they weren't flirting is likely right, but they may just be playing hard to get.

Batan: JJ sent their MTB's covering Clark in toward our small stuff landing troops and parchesi boards at Bataan. a true Clash of Midgets. The LCTs have too shallow a draft for torpedoes so it was all gunfire...with the largest caliber being a .50. We got a few LCT's shot up, 5 maybe..then a single PT boat can't stop them, then an ASW broup of SC's draws a blank....... And then..........our heavy stuff showed up, culminating in the 15th Battle of Subic Bay.......

Iba/Lingayen: JJ threatened to avenge our DD raid on Aparri...they send in subs. The loss of the DM's several days back in the mining of Iba is partly redeemed. The good news is, when striking a mine with a minisub, there is no drowning involved.

I doubt Imperial High Command is going to be satisfied. Very heavy plane losses (by early '43 standards) and they managed only to dent two AK's.

At Iba alone I count at least 31 Zeroes, 12 Oscars, 4 Nells, 21 Bettys and 4 Helens over Iba plus a bunch of Vals over Batangas. Probably one of those morale-breaking days as Nippon.

No, they'll be ecstatic at such an exchange. For modest plane losses, they've managed to sink two aircraft carriers, a battleship and numerous cruisers and destroyers.

DU: I'd hate to go on that non-return mission to Mars and have to live in a little box for the rest of my life.
Me: You can put on a spacesuit and go outside for a walk.
DU: I'd be scared if I looked up and all I could see was space.
