When we got to Subic main gate the first Jap dive bombers were already pushing over into their dives and the triple A was opening up. The sentry at the gate was scared to death and was sure our driver was a Jap spy so Bob and Skinny and I had to get out and hoof
it over to the battery. We all forgot about our hangovers. If it weren't for the threat of instant death I would greatly recommend a surprise attack by Japan as a great hangover cure. Before we reached the battery we saw USS Seal take a hit on her foredeck. The bomb seemed to go straight through and explode beneath her, sinking her almost immediately and damaging the boats alongside. We saw Canopus take two hits and before long the air was thick with smoke. We fired until the ammunition began to run low. No sooner had the carrier bombers left than level bombers arrive from the North.......

DBB/Scenario 28/PDU on/Allies have first right of refusal on Portuguese Timor. We are the good guys.

The Bettys come in at 6000 ft. A port attack on Manila was half expected so all the P-40's from Clark were moved down to provide better CAP over Manila. It didn't really work because of the surprise. Only a trivial number of fighters got airborne. Oh well.
I think the Bettys did more damage than the carrier planes.

everyone knows War Plan Orange is a joke.

2 Squadrons of P-40's have their morale wrecked so they are flown off to Mindanao and Cebu and the damaged airframes trucked down to Batangas because JJ will undoubtedly be back tomorrow if the weather permits.

WJD carriers are off the NE tip of Palawan, 240 WSW of Manila. Recon shows only 2 carriers but there are 270 planes so it has to be most of the KB. Even so, they are about 100 planes short. Maybe one or two carriers detached and not spotted?

Hiryu was reported off the coast of Malaysia with only 3 fighters aboard. I seriously doubt that is Hiryu. More like a CVL.

No landing on Luzon or Mindanao yet but there are 25K LYB's ashore at Kendari.

Here is why I didn't see your post until now...BECAUSE I WAS ASLEEP I'm beginning to think the flat Earth theory is at odds with experimental observations.

December 8

After a tense day of attacks and false alarms, Bob and Skinny and I took turns covering all 3 sections last night in case the Japs came back after dark. They did not. We had to scrounge a jeep to bring up ammo. 20 minutes after sunrise we got another air raid warning. It was the bombers from Formosa again. We counted 70-80 in the first raid. Today they came in at 10,000 most likely owing to our shooting yesterday. Most of their energy was directed at the airfield today. Two men is 1st section were wounded with splinters and Sgt. Gathers was unfortunately lost. It fell to Bob to write the family although I'm not sure how the mail will get out. PBY maybe? No attacks on shipping in the harbor but the fighter jockeys are taking a beating. The Jap Zero is quite a capable plane, it seems. Scuttlebut is no landing on Luzon yet but we all suspect it will happen soon. That's it for now. I've ordered some of the lighter weapons moved to cover the airfield better. At this rate of consumption we will need help from the Navy soon. I hope they know what they are doing.

We had to contest the airspace over Manila with all the damaged vessels below. One time I read about a strategy where you bait the enemy fighters down to lower altitude with 2nd line aircraft and then jump THEM from above with your 1st line planes.

Like much of what you read on this forum IT'S Boooool Sheeeet.

Ack.....ack. 85 Netty sorties with 51 Zeroes. They have brought in more fighters from SE Asia to finish off the
Army Air Force on Luzon. Time to get the Hell out. Any damaged ships are on their own.

Turns out it really is Hiryu on station off of Malaysia. And maybe Soryu too. The RAF barely missed a bomb hit on Hiryu yesterday it seems.

I tried to talk Admiral Lord SPrior from sending Thanet down the West coast of Luzon. You never know. There is no completely safe route and they might have run across a carrier.

Another AAR? Don't you guys work for a living?

BTW- the turn is with you


Here is why I didn't see your post until now...BECAUSE I WAS ASLEEP I'm beginning to think the flat Earth theory is at odds with experimental observations.



No the flat earth theory still holds. I'm in Australia on the bottom side- you're on North America on the top side- it's dark there when its light here and vice versa- makes perfect sense if the sun goes around the earth.
