Not much to report today. In India, I attack the 2nd Tank Division again and cause damage to it, but suffer some attrition in the form of my own tank disablements. John completely evacuates Howrah and I will take it tomorrow. Japanese fleets are moving in the Bay of Bengal; John might try a sea evacuation. Elsewhere, sigint still shows the 12th Division moving to Canton Island.
