Burma: The Allied attack at Magwe failed, but the adjusted AV was so low that I think I didn't set "all units" to attack. I'll try again with the bulk of the troops tomorrow. At Moulmein, the Chinese unit crossed the river but didn't auto attack, apparently because I already had enough in the hex to avoid that feature. So the Chinese are set to shock attack tomorrow. The CL Birmingham TF hammered a handful of merchants at Moulmein. The remaining two APDs, both at Port Blair, will load a force and head for Phuket - part of the effort to keep Steve a little off balance in the western DEI. We want him focused here.
Sumatra: Aussie infantry and US tanks brush aside the week opposition two hexes east of Sibolga. The tanks will move forward to gauge enemy strength a hex closer to that base.
Borneo: Quiet today. Still thinking we might get a surface clash at Kuching if the Hiei TF tries to make its way into the port. A sub up near Soc Trang got a sighting on Atago - first time I've seen her in a long time.
Eastern DEI: Supply TF arrived undetected at Sorong. Garrison TF bound for Morotai will arrive tomorrow or the day after (also undetected).
NoPac: By the end of winter, I project Para to have level four port, level six airfield, and level six or seven forts. The balance of 41st Div. is loading at Dutch Harbor to make the trip to Para - upon its safe arrival the AV will rise to 760. My objective is to get this base to 1,000 to 1,500. Tomorrow, two Canadian battalions at Victoria begin loading for the trip to Onnekotan. By the end of winter, that base should have ports two, airfields three, and forts four or five, with AV of 400 or so. Tonight, the CL Mauritius TF will make a raid from Para to Shimishura - the first time I've tried this.
