Hainan: The Indians come ashore at the smaller AF on Hainan and everything goes well so far. We flew in some AF support and have Chicom fighters on Hainan.

PI: Another bombing raid on Clark. Our AAA usually takes one or two Jap planes out every day.

Annoying, the KB, having been spotted in the Southern Philippine Sea just disappears. This is bad. It means we have to stop all the forward landings in the Solomons and New Britain.

I give up on Tavoy. 70th Div and two other brigades are going to return toward Moulmein and take the road over to Rahaeng. One brigade stays at Tavoy to keep them honest.

Seems as though there are a couple of tasty, tasty IJA targets there in open terrain North of Bangkok. Do you think they'd fancy getting steamrolled by some LB-30/B-17/B-24, etc.? They're probably in range of Rangoon / Moulmein.

Yes, I ordered the USAAF and RAF Liberators at Moulmein to attack those LYB's down by Nachon Watchamacallit....but they refused to budge. Probably there are some Tojos fling LRCAP

*********Aboard HMS Shillong, Moulmein Harbour********

Able Seaman Membere: Petty Officer, some of the lads ashore were making fun of the ship. They said it means something funny in Yiddish.

Petty Office Turgidson: I wouldn't worry about it, lad. Do you see anyone speaking Yiddish here?

**************February 2, 1943(e)**************

New Britain and New Ireland: We bomb Kavieng so the Japs move their planes back to Rabaul. Moving the transports back in the Solomons in case the KB shows up. They are missing again for a day.

South China Sea: Jap ships 370 S of Kiungshan headed NE. The transports at Kingshan bug out and we move some dive bombers to Vinh.

Siam: The LYB's have cut the supply link from Rahaeng to central Siam, the baahstards.

Tentative plan:

1) Break things with the heavy bombers until they move all their planes out.

2) Build up Buka and Woodlark Is. Start work on Arawe AF and Feni Is

3) When available, draw barges at Salamua to supply Arawe

4) When the KB is located somewhere safely away, land at Kavieng.

Is there a tentative plan if KB strikes? Other than the obvious one.

I think Cap has been quite clear in his tentative planning. He's been tentative much of the game.

Maybe it is similar to be stoned for saying "Jehowah" (life of Brian)...
