TF 35 is the victum of an attack of the Allied PBY's and one of the ships is still burning. I'm sending them to Oosthaven as a temporary
measure so that I can get a carrier over here to sweep the airfields and find the PBY's and kill them. I've got a CVE or CVL near Saigon
that I can motor over here. She's going to have to swap out the Kate's to make room for some Zero's because the capacity is only 27 as
I recall.

TF 36 was unloading fuel at Salamaua and I look around for better opportunities and I find Buna which is going to receive the heavy guns
that bombarded Port Moresby last night and they are probably going to be thursty so I'm thinking I'll just send TF 36 down to Buna to try
to prevent a shortage before it happens.

TF 51 is a sub babysitting Port Hedland and she reports that an AM and an AK have come to visit and should I try to sink them. Which I
answer afirmative and start planning to get a sub out to replace TF 51 when it invariably will run out of torps. I've got a sub that's just
about to pull into Oosthaven that might have the range to make it out here to Port Hedland. I needed a spare sub anyway.

I'm just about able to get my northernmost picket line almost lined up and ready. The idea is to have a ship every couple of hexes so that
those nasty Allied ships can't sneak through w/o warning and threaten my shipping.

I-166 got damaged by a rampaging KV and took 10 hits of damage and has to leave Diego Garcia but the I-123 will replace her so there
will be only a short duration of interruption of service on that location. The problem is that KV that hit the I-166.......it's probably still there
so the I-123 will probably follow the I-166 to the repair barn and there will be no service on this location at all. Too dangerous. That's
what I think will happen. If the I-123 can hang around for a while then maybe all is not lost yet.

Port Hedland has had Allied visitors about twice in the last week, it seems like. So I'm thinking it might be time to put a minefield there to
give the Allies something to think about. TF 66 has graciously volunteered to deliver some mines to Port Hedland and is on the first step
to get there, Babar.

I'm going through the task forces one at a time deciding whether to change what they're already doing or not and I get to
TF 70 and to my surprise I find an Allied TF on the map. There's only my Jap DD to his south to contend with them......I'd better try to get
him some back up and see what else is there. I've got some heavy iron at Tulagi, I think, that I can re-direct to here.

TF 173 is the CVL Nisshin and I'm racing north at mission speed to Yokohoma to get her repaired. She's naked ( w/o planes ) and kind of
vulnerable right now. Had 4 torps shot at her last night in a close call and the sub is probably chasing her. The Nisshin has an escort
but that didn't prevent the attack last night. Maybe I should have sent more escorts w/ her.

I'm calculating that there's not going to be much action in the Brisbane area for a while so I can detatch this sub from it's east coast
babysitting duty and send it to check out that Allied TF. It's going to take about 4 days to get there though that's the only catch in this
plan. I'm going to need something else as a solution to this situation.

I thought I might as well get the two northern carriers together and line up some AO's and make a tour of Alaska or something. Stir the
pot a little bit. Go see what's in Seattle these days. Come to think of it.......I'll probably need more than two carriers for that. I'll see if I
can't russle up another carrier from somewhere to go with these guys.

TF 335 is two carriers w/ escorts and I've just asked them to go investigate that Allied TF at Espirite Santos and maybe try to sink some-
thing. He's got sorties left but the Kates on the Akagi are down to 2-plane units now. All those sorties on the ports of Brisbane and
Townsville has left me w/ only a few Kates. I'll have to send it back to Tokyo or somewhere to get those squadrons swapped out for
fresh ones.

Supplies for Lunga are finally arriving. Guadacanal in real life wasn't a port or an airfield until, like, August 42 IIRC, and fuel is being
loaded especially for Lunga, and engineers are being rounded up for Lunga. Let's see how long it takes to produce a base there.

I-30 reports that some Allied ships have come to visit Palmyra and there's more on the way. So I've got to see if I can put together a
response for this. Maybe I don't have much I can do right now. I'll have to look around for some AO's to get all the way out to Palmyra.
Jim has already destroyed 3 of my prescious AO's and I'd really rather not lose any more so I'm putting out picket ships whenever I can
scrape up another one. I'm using SC's PB's and some scattering of DD's But the more immediate emergency is this one that I-30
reports. If I don't act pretty quick Jim will be able to unload some troops there and then my problem compounds. I'll get back to you on
this one.

If I can manage to get the DMS W-3 fixed in Saigon then I'll have two DMS ships in the inventory. W-5 is on her way out to Maladapted
and I'm thinking of using W-3, after it's fixed, at Bataan, to clean up the last of that remaining minefield. I'd hate to fight the rest of the war
with just two DMS ships. I'd better take a look at how the building of some more DMS ships might be done. I'll get back to you.

According to the ship availability screen I'm due to get three more DMS ships the rest of the war, one in July, one in August, and one
almost a year from now. And I'll have to make do with that addition to the fleet.

Diego Garcia is an excellent place for Jap subs to hunt: On the other hand it's damaging my subs at a higher rate than any other station.
I'm thinking I'm going to have to give those KV's some breathing room.

I was hoping to find two wounded BB's and these ain't them. I'm thinking I'd best leave these guys alone. They can shoot.

Jim has honed those PBY's into a finely sharpened tool, deadly to all ships alike. We're sailing into deadly waters here.

Those Hurricane pilots in Java must be pretty good. Only one Hurricane shot down.
