From all appearances, Raiden seems to have evacuated northern Australia entirely. I have heard a story about Japanese soldiers having a picnic at Ayer's Rock but disappearing, but I must caution that these are unsubstantiated rumors. In my own investigation I found Aborigines who spoke of meeting them in the Dream Time. I have not found these people to traffic in idle gossip, and must take their words seriously.

Soldiers in the southern zone were notified of an Imperial rescript that had been issued chastising them for the lack of photo intel in Hawaii and at a secret location in the continental U.S. code named 'The Magic Kingdom'. Local commanders immediately issued orders rectifying this terrible lapse.

Well it definitely WAS back in the day when I got to participate in a concert there with my junior H.S. band (1st chair trumpet), but since I haven't been back since, I have no clue as to it's present metaphysical state of being.

The "Magic Kingdom" must be synonymous with "The Dreamtime". Both seem rather vague these days ...

4/13/43 Ndeni falls! I'm going to give you the stuff for today, and when I have a chance I'll go back one day and then another. Here begins the battle reports. All this action is on the Ndeni hex.

Here's the map. If some of the ranges are confusing, that is because I clicked on the hex circled in green for some of them.
The CVE TF left the battle without permission.

Here is something peculiar. This was in my operations report, but the units in question are still there, at full strength, with disruption = 0 and morale = 99. Does anyone know what this means?

Here's the situation in China. The circled area upper right is a min Battle of the Bulge that has been going on for some time. The other circled area is where he's made some progress of late.

I have seen that from time to time during landings. I think it means when the landings started the ships had used up most of their ops points for that phase [night] and only landed a few part squads which could not form a unit fraction, or the fraction dispersed to take cover with no officers to rally around. Next phase, enough of each of the units landed to re-absorb the dispersed troops.

wyrmm's sister is in some sort of medical emergency. For those of you inclined to such things, this may be a good time to pray.

Moving back in time, these are the Ndeni invasion events for 4/12/43. Minesweepers have arrived with a couple BBs for protection. Looks like BBs aren't very good against CLs and DDs.

Didn't know about Wyrmm's sister, good news then!

Battleships are at great risk in night combat against smaller ships because the night often allows good torpedo attacks.

Moving forward in time to 4/15/43
These BBs had positioned themselves one hex out of range of my CVs, preparing for a night attack on Ndeni. That night, however I had moved my CVs one hex closer. Still out of torpedo range though.

4/16/43 His BBs showed up at the last location of my CVs, looking no worse for wear. They encountered only a couple of DDs. My CVs were screened by two powerful fast BB TFs. Also if he had gone to Ndeni, he would have encountered the slow BBs you see here.

In the a.m. my CV aircraft found them, again beyond torpedo range. I lost a lot of planes for nothing.
