You have discovered the ultra secret 1st Independent Pitching Machine Artillery Company.  Not only are we unloading ALL our balls, we will soon be sending them to you to enlighten those beastly Aussie's and their nasty perversion of football.  (Disclaimer, I went to high school in Oz, and actually like Aussie Rules Football.)

As I'm sure you know, the Gorn calendar is somewhat different than your own. To convert, you add 32 then multiply by 5/8 then throw a dart at a Mayan calendar then remembering there are 2.5 Gorn days in a human inch worm apply Pi and there you have it!



Of course. But then let's take the 12th derivative of Gorn days & calculate the Lambda Sigma Epsilon of the cube root of New Guinea...

I had to get my slide rule out but it looks like Port Moresby is doomed!

Well, I think Raiden has run into a bit more than he expected at PM. On the other hand, thinking his CVs were distracted up there, I took the chance of trying to reinforce Noumea with a tank battalion. I knew there was a CS in the area, I think Shoho, but I thought the risk worth taking. Anyhow, when they arrived they were greeted by at least 2 CVs, I think. The entire battalion was lost. I think this calls for a drink.





The mosquitoes were getting tired of our carcasses, I'm sure they are excited about the new blood. Besides, we've been thinning it out a bit more than to their liking, if you know what I mean.

A bit more than I wanted at PM, but less than expected considering the constant convoys of akl's heading there.  Thankfully the second wave is about ready to join them.  With the release of the Philippines troops, I actually need to find gainful employment for those troops, no more frolicing in the surf a Subic.

Perhaps you don't expect the level of supplies there. You can bomb there from here to kingdom come and they won't run out. While I may have lacked more troops to send, I had no shortage of bully beef.

3/2/42 Second bombardment of PM. Ouch! Has Raiden's R&D already produced proximity fuses?

3/13/42 Valorous Indian forces recaptured Cox's Bazar from some Japanese paratroops. In the process they destroyed two carriers, a battleship, and numerous cruisers and destroyers.





Our troops were disgusted when they discovered that these paratroops had been eating dead fish that washed up on the shore. Raw. The remainder of his forces are skulking around in the jungle, no doubt eating snails and worms. We will deal with them shortly.

In other news, the Japanese captured Tjilijap and launched another futile assault on Singapore. A convoy has been spotted in the Solomon Sea. Perhaps it carries reinforcements to the troops stranded pitifully at Port Moresby.

You can get a copy of "Soranoshipei" which is a march (with vocals) that the Special Naval Landing Forces (paratroops) used, here:

3/15/42 Raiden is attempting to reinforce the measly number of forces he sent to PM. Here is part of the action. This is what I call marksmanship. I'm told that having Malaria is somewhat like being on LSD. I am now busy trying to obtain a supply of this substance to give to the rest of my artillery units.

Has anyone else noted that Raiden is strangely quiet? His carriers are no where to be seen either. He is rubbing his hands together watching his diabolical plans develop, plans no one could predict, and he is terrified that he might give something away if he said anything. Let me key you in, he has a company of Samurai loaded on an ocean tug entering New York harbor even as we speak. They carry with them a weapon of unspeakable potential (only because I can't read katanka or pronounce it) but are only armed personally with bows and arrows, and swords. They are blissfully unaware of the danger they face when the street people of NYC discover them. Let them rest in peace.

3/19/42 The Yokosuka 3rd SNLF naval paratroopers are no more. It's a shame to lose an elite unit like that. There's still the Yokosuka 1st SNLF. Perhaps they will avenge them.

Raiden now has two divisions at Port Moresby, plus artillery and such. The mosquitoes are overjoyed.

Some of his carriers have reappeared near New Caledonia. Surprise, Surprise.

3/23/42 Mogami made a visit to Cox's Bazar but with only a CL and a couple of DDs it barely made an impression. His carrier group that appeared near New Caledonia has disappeared. This is probably due to a lot of very bad weather in the area. Some float planes made an attack on Noumea coming from Koumac, so this suggests to me that the minor KB is moving on to somewhere else. You may think it unwise of me to give such information out, but I am not beyond desception, and if Raiden didn't know it before (which I doubt) he does now.

Here I include displays about my fighter pilot situation. I believe I've done much better than I've done before in this regard, and I think that's very important. I'm especially glad about the small number of KIAs in my top pilots display. Something odd I don't understand yet, actually two things: I don't understand the discrepancy between the top pilots display and the reserve pilots display insofar as the second has a pilot with 7 kills who is not shown on the first display. Comments on this are appreciated. Second puzzle for me is that Boyington was at a (general) experience level of 83 or 84 when I sent him to the reserve with the intention of sending him to TRACOM, but the next day he was listed as WIA, and then, once he came off that listing, he only had a (general) experience score of 75. Any comments about that will also be appreciated.

I know next to nothing about how the pilot training/kill credits work so I will offer pure conjecture"

1. The pilot with 7 downed aircraft crashed them all during training
2. Boyington returned to the States, went to a bar, bragged too much and got into a bar fight. He was hit over the head with a bottle and now has blurry vision, lowering his abilities and thus his experience score.

Now you know ...

3/25/42 Here's the results of his assault on Batavia. Obviously he can afford equal exchanges more than I.

4/3/42 Additional Japanese forces are about to arrive in Noumea marching down from Koumac. They will have contracted malaria by now. I have no idea how long it takes to recover in the resort city of Noumea, with its famous spas and what all.

The other day Mutsu took a fish (1 out of a spread of 6) from a US sub near PM just before her TF was to bombard there. Ise, Hyuga and Nagato continued on while Mutsu began her retreat. She appeared to be making pretty good time so she's not badly hurt, as you would expect. I figure adding the time it takes to get to a shipyard, get repaired and return will be 10 weeks or more.

Following the bombardment, Raiden landed some more troops including a tank regiment. A shock attack followed. The computer must have ordered it, but it looks like he may have lost up to 75 of those tanks. Still a success I think, having reduced the fortifications a level.

Raiden crossed the Chinese border from Burma and is fighting his way toward Paoshan, having reversed the BFF brigade from the first hex of Chinese territory. BFF, best friends forever? It's a Commonwealth unit, but that seems rather optimistic. It and a Sikh battalion stand between him and Paoshan.

Here is the tank battle at PM.

Raiden seems to be reluctant to entertain our guests, so apparently that is up to me until I can tease him into posting more often. I was trying to think what you all would be most interested in, and I settled on the most obvious answer, you want to know more about me. You may think I'm quite young judging from my appearance, but I assure you I'm quite old in your human terms, and positively ancient in dog years. For instance ...

As you no doubt know, when the Beatles came over in '64 Ringo was not the drummer. He took over after I became tired of it.
