Battle of Timor Sea: No action in the region today.
All remaining Allied TFs made Darwin today, replenishing ammo, fuel and, for the carriers, aircraft. Things look good.
Things look so good that, when I began to press "Unload" Koepang troop transports (to allow the units to recover while the ships got ready for the next campaign), it struck me that Koepang is more open now than it was before, even though I have less carriers (two less CV, two less CVL, one less CVE, but partially offset by five more CVE from the Perth TF).
So DS & The Herd will head back to sea tonight, bound for Koepang. This rather than wait the 7-9 days for 3rd Marine Div. to reach 50% on Dili prep.
Over at Marcus, Allied transports are offloading a powerful coastal CD force. Each TF that comes in loads a part of 43rd Div., toting it to the assembly point (Townsville) for its next mission. Dave has a Glen-sub here but hasn't sent anything bigger to investigate. That may change.
