      Abandon Ship (USS Indianapolis)
      By: Richard Newcomb
      Discription of PBY part by Hank Aries, (N7GGC)
      Factual book, the OA10 on scene was Richard C. Alcorn of 4th ERS on Pelieu
      who arrived at twilight and picked up one man but had to shut down because
      of danger of taxi-ing into others. Lt. Marks was taken on tour of scene by
      PV standing by and was able to land in daylight in vicinity of large group
      and elected to go after most vulnerable single sailors as groups together
      had better odds. They picked up 54 taxi-ing around and at dark ARM3/c Roland
      Shepard and S1/c Warren Kirchoff volunteered and went out in raft and got
      2 more. The USS Doyle picked up these 56 + 1 from 4th ERS. It took 2 hours
      to transfer from Lt Marks PBY to Doyle without smashing it. Marks crew then
      stayed aboard rest of night and removed priority gear as plane was damaged
      from bumps from Doyle. In light of day Marks crew and salvaged gear were
      picked up and PBY sunk by gunfire. Our crew Lt Marmon and Lt Mykland arrived
      from Ulithi on that day along with planes and ships from all over area.
      Last part deals with court martial of Capt Mcvey.

      ALONE ON GUADALCANAL
      By Martin Clemens.
      It is a fabulous story by probably the most heralded of all the coastwatchers.
      It is put together from a diary he kept during the Guadalcanal campaign and is
      extremely well written. Not only is it a great read, it also contains many
      references to Catalina flights in the Solomons. For all who get this one,
      it will provide a unique and eye opening perspective on the Solomons campaign.
      Clemens goes into detail about the PBY-5 they hauled out of the water.
      By the way, as far as I know he is still alive and living in a suburb of
      Melbourne, Australia. He is a hero to the American marines 3rd Division and
      it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

      "From their bases in the north coast, Australians of 11 and 20 Squadrons
      were able to carry out bombing raids and rescue missions as far away as the
      coast of China. In researching this history of the RAAF Catalina flying boats
      based in Cairns, Karumba, Darwin and Melville Bay during WWII, and the men
      who flew and looked after them, the author has drawn on interviews with many
      of the men involved as well as archival evidence"

      Miller was called a "One man Task Force" and was even recommended
      for the Medal of Honor. Unconfirmed reports indicate that he
      got smashed the night before Pres Roosevelt was to award it to
      him and he missed the "Appointment"!!
      Ergo----many medals for Bus Miller but no Medal of Honor.

      Lonely Vigil (about Coastwatchers)
      By: Lord.
      Mentions Clemens and his men hauling a Cat out of the water onto the coast
      of Guadalcanal to hide it from the enemy, I don't think it was one of the
      amphibious types either!!! Also a sad story about an Ozzy Black Cat
      supplying some coastwatchers on Bougainville (Mason or Read) at night,
      on their last pass they crashed into a mountain. A few survived and were
      evacuated via sub later. This is also recounted in Minty's book. When things
      settled down later after the allied invasion one of the coastwatcher
      (Robbie Robinson & Co?) returned to the site and buried the pilots who were
      killed instantly by the impact. An example of the respect these courageous men
      had for each other. Brave men indeed.
      Jacob Vouza, one of Clemen's scouts (the one that was bayoneted and left for
      dead but made it back to Henderson to warn of an immanent attack).

        Abandon Ship (USS Indianapolis)
        By: Richard Newcomb
        Discription of PBY part by Hank Aries, (N7GGC)
        Factual book, the OA10 on scene was Richard C. Alcorn of 4th ERS on Pelieu
        who arrived at twilight and picked up one man but had to shut down because
        of danger of taxi-ing into others. Lt. Marks was taken on tour of scene by
        PV standing by and was able to land in daylight in vicinity of large group
        and elected to go after most vulnerable single sailors as groups together
        had better odds. They picked up 54 taxi-ing around and at dark ARM3/c Roland
        Shepard and S1/c Warren Kirchoff volunteered and went out in raft and got
        2 more. The USS Doyle picked up these 56 + 1 from 4th ERS. It took 2 hours
        to transfer from Lt Marks PBY to Doyle without smashing it. Marks crew then
        stayed aboard rest of night and removed priority gear as plane was damaged
        from bumps from Doyle. In light of day Marks crew and salvaged gear were
        picked up and PBY sunk by gunfire. Our crew Lt Marmon and Lt Mykland arrived
        from Ulithi on that day along with planes and ships from all over area.
        Last part deals with court martial of Capt Mcvey.

        ALONE ON GUADALCANAL
        By Martin Clemens.
        It is a fabulous story by probably the most heralded of all the coastwatchers.
        It is put together from a diary he kept during the Guadalcanal campaign and is
        extremely well written. Not only is it a great read, it also contains many
        references to Catalina flights in the Solomons. For all who get this one,
        it will provide a unique and eye opening perspective on the Solomons campaign.
        Clemens goes into detail about the PBY-5 they hauled out of the water.
        By the way, as far as I know he is still alive and living in a suburb of
        Melbourne, Australia. He is a hero to the American marines 3rd Division and
        it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

        "From their bases in the north coast, Australians of 11 and 20 Squadrons
        were able to carry out bombing raids and rescue missions as far away as the
        coast of China. In researching this history of the RAAF Catalina flying boats
        based in Cairns, Karumba, Darwin and Melville Bay during WWII, and the men
        who flew and looked after them, the author has drawn on interviews with many
        of the men involved as well as archival evidence"

        Lonely Vigil (about Coastwatchers)
        By: Lord.
        Mentions Clemens and his men hauling a Cat out of the water onto the coast
        of Guadalcanal to hide it from the enemy, I don't think it was one of the
        amphibious types either!!! Also a sad story about an Ozzy Black Cat
        supplying some coastwatchers on Bougainville (Mason or Read) at night,
        on their last pass they crashed into a mountain. A few survived and were
        evacuated via sub later. This is also recounted in Minty's book. When things
        settled down later after the allied invasion one of the coastwatcher
        (Robbie Robinson & Co?) returned to the site and buried the pilots who were
        killed instantly by the impact. An example of the respect these courageous men
        had for each other. Brave men indeed.
        Jacob Vouza, one of Clemen's scouts (the one that was bayoneted and left for
        dead but made it back to Henderson to warn of an immanent attack).

          Abandon Ship (USS Indianapolis)
          By: Richard Newcomb
          Discription of PBY part by Hank Aries, (N7GGC)
          Factual book, the OA10 on scene was Richard C. Alcorn of 4th ERS on Pelieu
          who arrived at twilight and picked up one man but had to shut down because
          of danger of taxi-ing into others. Lt. Marks was taken on tour of scene by
          PV standing by and was able to land in daylight in vicinity of large group
          and elected to go after most vulnerable single sailors as groups together
          had better odds. They picked up 54 taxi-ing around and at dark ARM3/c Roland
          Shepard and S1/c Warren Kirchoff volunteered and went out in raft and got
          2 more. The USS Doyle picked up these 56 + 1 from 4th ERS. It took 2 hours
          to transfer from Lt Marks PBY to Doyle without smashing it. Marks crew then
          stayed aboard rest of night and removed priority gear as plane was damaged
          from bumps from Doyle. In light of day Marks crew and salvaged gear were
          picked up and PBY sunk by gunfire. Our crew Lt Marmon and Lt Mykland arrived
          from Ulithi on that day along with planes and ships from all over area.
          Last part deals with court martial of Capt Mcvey.

          ALONE ON GUADALCANAL
          By Martin Clemens.
          It is a fabulous story by probably the most heralded of all the coastwatchers.
          It is put together from a diary he kept during the Guadalcanal campaign and is
          extremely well written. Not only is it a great read, it also contains many
          references to Catalina flights in the Solomons. For all who get this one,
          it will provide a unique and eye opening perspective on the Solomons campaign.
          Clemens goes into detail about the PBY-5 they hauled out of the water.
          By the way, as far as I know he is still alive and living in a suburb of
          Melbourne, Australia. He is a hero to the American marines 3rd Division and
          it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

          were able to carry out bombing raids and rescue missions as far away as the
          coast of China. In researching this history of the RAAF Catalina flying boats
          based in Cairns, Karumba, Darwin and Melville Bay during WWII, and the men
          who flew and looked after them, the author has drawn on interviews with many
          of the men involved as well as archival evidence"

          Primarily about PB4Y's (Navy Liberator)---but it is a hellova book.
          Miller was called a "One man Task Force" and was even recommended
          for the Medal of Honor. Unconfirmed reports indicate that he
          got smashed the night before Pres Roosevelt was to award it to
          him and he missed the "Appointment"!!
          Ergo----many medals for Bus Miller but no Medal of Honor.

          Lonely Vigil (about Coastwatchers)
          By: Lord.
          Mentions Clemens and his men hauling a Cat out of the water onto the coast
          of Guadalcanal to hide it from the enemy, I don't think it was one of the
          amphibious types either!!! Also a sad story about an Ozzy Black Cat
          supplying some coastwatchers on Bougainville (Mason or Read) at night,
          on their last pass they crashed into a mountain. A few survived and were
          evacuated via sub later. This is also recounted in Minty's book. When things
          settled down later after the allied invasion one of the coastwatcher
          (Robbie Robinson & Co?) returned to the site and buried the pilots who were
          killed instantly by the impact. An example of the respect these courageous men
          had for each other. Brave men indeed.
          Jacob Vouza, one of Clemen's scouts (the one that was bayoneted and left for
          dead but made it back to Henderson to warn of an immanent attack).

            Abandon Ship (USS Indianapolis)
            By: Richard Newcomb
            Discription of PBY part by Hank Aries, (N7GGC)
            Factual book, the OA10 on scene was Richard C. Alcorn of 4th ERS on Pelieu
            who arrived at twilight and picked up one man but had to shut down because
            of danger of taxi-ing into others. Lt. Marks was taken on tour of scene by
            PV standing by and was able to land in daylight in vicinity of large group
            and elected to go after most vulnerable single sailors as groups together
            had better odds. They picked up 54 taxi-ing around and at dark ARM3/c Roland
            Shepard and S1/c Warren Kirchoff volunteered and went out in raft and got
            2 more. The USS Doyle picked up these 56 + 1 from 4th ERS. It took 2 hours
            to transfer from Lt Marks PBY to Doyle without smashing it. Marks crew then
            stayed aboard rest of night and removed priority gear as plane was damaged
            from bumps from Doyle. In light of day Marks crew and salvaged gear were
            picked up and PBY sunk by gunfire. Our crew Lt Marmon and Lt Mykland arrived
            from Ulithi on that day along with planes and ships from all over area.
            Last part deals with court martial of Capt Mcvey.

            ALONE ON GUADALCANAL
            By Martin Clemens.
            It is a fabulous story by probably the most heralded of all the coastwatchers.
            It is put together from a diary he kept during the Guadalcanal campaign and is
            extremely well written. Not only is it a great read, it also contains many
            references to Catalina flights in the Solomons. For all who get this one,
            it will provide a unique and eye opening perspective on the Solomons campaign.
            Clemens goes into detail about the PBY-5 they hauled out of the water.
            By the way, as far as I know he is still alive and living in a suburb of
            Melbourne, Australia. He is a hero to the American marines 3rd Division and
            it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

            "From their bases in the north coast, Australians of 11 and 20 Squadrons
            were able to carry out bombing raids and rescue missions as far away as the
            coast of China. In researching this history of the RAAF Catalina flying boats
            based in Cairns, Karumba, Darwin and Melville Bay during WWII, and the men
            who flew and looked after them, the author has drawn on interviews with many
            of the men involved as well as archival evidence"

            Miller was called a "One man Task Force" and was even recommended
            for the Medal of Honor. Unconfirmed reports indicate that he
            got smashed the night before Pres Roosevelt was to award it to
            him and he missed the "Appointment"!!
            Ergo----many medals for Bus Miller but no Medal of Honor.

            Lonely Vigil (about Coastwatchers)
            By: Lord.
            Mentions Clemens and his men hauling a Cat out of the water onto the coast
            of Guadalcanal to hide it from the enemy, I don't think it was one of the
            amphibious types either!!! Also a sad story about an Ozzy Black Cat
            supplying some coastwatchers on Bougainville (Mason or Read) at night,
            on their last pass they crashed into a mountain. A few survived and were
            evacuated via sub later. This is also recounted in Minty's book. When things
            settled down later after the allied invasion one of the coastwatcher
            (Robbie Robinson & Co?) returned to the site and buried the pilots who were
            killed instantly by the impact. An example of the respect these courageous men
            had for each other. Brave men indeed.
            Jacob Vouza, one of Clemen's scouts (the one that was bayoneted and left for
            dead but made it back to Henderson to warn of an immanent attack).

              Abandon Ship (USS Indianapolis)
              By: Richard Newcomb
              Discription of PBY part by Hank Aries, (N7GGC)
              Factual book, the OA10 on scene was Richard C. Alcorn of 4th ERS on Pelieu
              who arrived at twilight and picked up one man but had to shut down because
              of danger of taxi-ing into others. Lt. Marks was taken on tour of scene by
              PV standing by and was able to land in daylight in vicinity of large group
              and elected to go after most vulnerable single sailors as groups together
              had better odds. They picked up 54 taxi-ing around and at dark ARM3/c Roland
              Shepard and S1/c Warren Kirchoff volunteered and went out in raft and got
              2 more. The USS Doyle picked up these 56 + 1 from 4th ERS. It took 2 hours
              to transfer from Lt Marks PBY to Doyle without smashing it. Marks crew then
              stayed aboard rest of night and removed priority gear as plane was damaged
              from bumps from Doyle. In light of day Marks crew and salvaged gear were
              picked up and PBY sunk by gunfire. Our crew Lt Marmon and Lt Mykland arrived
              from Ulithi on that day along with planes and ships from all over area.
              Last part deals with court martial of Capt Mcvey.

              ALONE ON GUADALCANAL
              By Martin Clemens.
              It is a fabulous story by probably the most heralded of all the coastwatchers.
              It is put together from a diary he kept during the Guadalcanal campaign and is
              extremely well written. Not only is it a great read, it also contains many
              references to Catalina flights in the Solomons. For all who get this one,
              it will provide a unique and eye opening perspective on the Solomons campaign.
              Clemens goes into detail about the PBY-5 they hauled out of the water.
              By the way, as far as I know he is still alive and living in a suburb of
              Melbourne, Australia. He is a hero to the American marines 3rd Division and
              it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

              There is a photograph of a couple of RAAF types making adjustments

              page 60-61 of note is each rocket provided 1000lb of thrust - the RAAF tests
              were with Aerojet Type 12AS-1000D solid propellent rocket bottles -
              4 were used - 2 per side to the rear of the fuselage - the year seems
              to be 1948 and the purpose to use the Cat for stores at Macquarie Island -
              "The Cat A24-104 departed Hobart, and after a seen and half hour flight
              made a succesful rough water landing and then departed in very adverse
              conditions with the assistance of the JATO gear" The article also noted
              earlier US tests were with 8 rockets in the original design.

              based in Cairns, Karumba, Darwin and Melville Bay during WWII, and the men
              who flew and looked after them, the author has drawn on interviews with many

              Primarily about PB4Y's (Navy Liberator)---but it is a hellova book.
              Miller was called a "One man Task Force" and was even recommended
              for the Medal of Honor. Unconfirmed reports indicate that he
              got smashed the night before Pres Roosevelt was to award it to
              him and he missed the "Appointment"!!
              Ergo----many medals for Bus Miller but no Medal of Honor.

              Lonely Vigil (about Coastwatchers)
              By: Lord.
              Mentions Clemens and his men hauling a Cat out of the water onto the coast
              of Guadalcanal to hide it from the enemy, I don't think it was one of the
              amphibious types either!!! Also a sad story about an Ozzy Black Cat
              supplying some coastwatchers on Bougainville (Mason or Read) at night,
              on their last pass they crashed into a mountain. A few survived and were
              evacuated via sub later. This is also recounted in Minty's book. When things
              settled down later after the allied invasion one of the coastwatcher
              (Robbie Robinson & Co?) returned to the site and buried the pilots who were
              killed instantly by the impact. An example of the respect these courageous men
              had for each other. Brave men indeed.
              Jacob Vouza, one of Clemen's scouts (the one that was bayoneted and left for
              dead but made it back to Henderson to warn of an immanent attack).

                Abandon Ship (USS Indianapolis)
                By: Richard Newcomb
                Discription of PBY part by Hank Aries, (N7GGC)
                Factual book, the OA10 on scene was Richard C. Alcorn of 4th ERS on Pelieu
                who arrived at twilight and picked up one man but had to shut down because
                of danger of taxi-ing into others. Lt. Marks was taken on tour of scene by
                PV standing by and was able to land in daylight in vicinity of large group
                and elected to go after most vulnerable single sailors as groups together
                had better odds. They picked up 54 taxi-ing around and at dark ARM3/c Roland
                Shepard and S1/c Warren Kirchoff volunteered and went out in raft and got
                2 more. The USS Doyle picked up these 56 + 1 from 4th ERS. It took 2 hours
                to transfer from Lt Marks PBY to Doyle without smashing it. Marks crew then
                stayed aboard rest of night and removed priority gear as plane was damaged
                from bumps from Doyle. In light of day Marks crew and salvaged gear were
                picked up and PBY sunk by gunfire. Our crew Lt Marmon and Lt Mykland arrived
                from Ulithi on that day along with planes and ships from all over area.
                Last part deals with court martial of Capt Mcvey.

                ALONE ON GUADALCANAL
                By Martin Clemens.
                It is a fabulous story by probably the most heralded of all the coastwatchers.
                It is put together from a diary he kept during the Guadalcanal campaign and is
                extremely well written. Not only is it a great read, it also contains many
                references to Catalina flights in the Solomons. For all who get this one,
                it will provide a unique and eye opening perspective on the Solomons campaign.
                Clemens goes into detail about the PBY-5 they hauled out of the water.
                By the way, as far as I know he is still alive and living in a suburb of
                Melbourne, Australia. He is a hero to the American marines 3rd Division and
                it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

                There is a photograph of a couple of RAAF types making adjustments

                page 60-61 of note is each rocket provided 1000lb of thrust - the RAAF tests
                were with Aerojet Type 12AS-1000D solid propellent rocket bottles -
                4 were used - 2 per side to the rear of the fuselage - the year seems
                to be 1948 and the purpose to use the Cat for stores at Macquarie Island -
                "The Cat A24-104 departed Hobart, and after a seen and half hour flight
                made a succesful rough water landing and then departed in very adverse
                conditions with the assistance of the JATO gear" The article also noted
                earlier US tests were with 8 rockets in the original design.

                Primarily about PB4Y's (Navy Liberator)---but it is a hellova book.
                Miller was called a "One man Task Force" and was even recommended
                for the Medal of Honor. Unconfirmed reports indicate that he
                got smashed the night before Pres Roosevelt was to award it to
                him and he missed the "Appointment"!!
                Ergo----many medals for Bus Miller but no Medal of Honor.

                Lonely Vigil (about Coastwatchers)
                By: Lord.
                Mentions Clemens and his men hauling a Cat out of the water onto the coast
                of Guadalcanal to hide it from the enemy, I don't think it was one of the
                amphibious types either!!! Also a sad story about an Ozzy Black Cat
                supplying some coastwatchers on Bougainville (Mason or Read) at night,
                on their last pass they crashed into a mountain. A few survived and were
                evacuated via sub later. This is also recounted in Minty's book. When things
                settled down later after the allied invasion one of the coastwatcher
                (Robbie Robinson & Co?) returned to the site and buried the pilots who were
                killed instantly by the impact. An example of the respect these courageous men
                had for each other. Brave men indeed.
                Jacob Vouza, one of Clemen's scouts (the one that was bayoneted and left for
                dead but made it back to Henderson to warn of an immanent attack).

                  Abandon Ship (USS Indianapolis)
                  By: Richard Newcomb
                  Discription of PBY part by Hank Aries, (N7GGC)
                  Factual book, the OA10 on scene was Richard C. Alcorn of 4th ERS on Pelieu
                  who arrived at twilight and picked up one man but had to shut down because
                  of danger of taxi-ing into others. Lt. Marks was taken on tour of scene by
                  PV standing by and was able to land in daylight in vicinity of large group
                  and elected to go after most vulnerable single sailors as groups together
                  had better odds. They picked up 54 taxi-ing around and at dark ARM3/c Roland
                  Shepard and S1/c Warren Kirchoff volunteered and went out in raft and got
                  2 more. The USS Doyle picked up these 56 + 1 from 4th ERS. It took 2 hours
                  to transfer from Lt Marks PBY to Doyle without smashing it. Marks crew then
                  stayed aboard rest of night and removed priority gear as plane was damaged
                  from bumps from Doyle. In light of day Marks crew and salvaged gear were
                  picked up and PBY sunk by gunfire. Our crew Lt Marmon and Lt Mykland arrived
                  from Ulithi on that day along with planes and ships from all over area.
                  Last part deals with court martial of Capt Mcvey.

                  ALONE ON GUADALCANAL
                  By Martin Clemens.
                  It is a fabulous story by probably the most heralded of all the coastwatchers.
                  It is put together from a diary he kept during the Guadalcanal campaign and is
                  extremely well written. Not only is it a great read, it also contains many
                  references to Catalina flights in the Solomons. For all who get this one,
                  it will provide a unique and eye opening perspective on the Solomons campaign.
                  Clemens goes into detail about the PBY-5 they hauled out of the water.
                  By the way, as far as I know he is still alive and living in a suburb of
                  Melbourne, Australia. He is a hero to the American marines 3rd Division and
                  it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

                  There is a photograph of a couple of RAAF types making adjustments
                  to a couple of JATO bottles on a Cat and some finer details on
                  page 60-61 of note is each rocket provided 1000lb of thrust - the RAAF tests
                  were with Aerojet Type 12AS-1000D solid propellent rocket bottles -
                  4 were used - 2 per side to the rear of the fuselage - the year seems
                  to be 1948 and the purpose to use the Cat for stores at Macquarie Island -
                  "The Cat A24-104 departed Hobart, and after a seen and half hour flight
                  made a succesful rough water landing and then departed in very adverse
                  conditions with the assistance of the JATO gear" The article also noted
                  earlier US tests were with 8 rockets in the original design.

                  were able to carry out bombing raids and rescue missions as far away as the

                  Miller was called a "One man Task Force" and was even recommended
                  for the Medal of Honor. Unconfirmed reports indicate that he

                  Lonely Vigil (about Coastwatchers)
                  By: Lord.
                  Mentions Clemens and his men hauling a Cat out of the water onto the coast
                  of Guadalcanal to hide it from the enemy, I don't think it was one of the
                  amphibious types either!!! Also a sad story about an Ozzy Black Cat
                  supplying some coastwatchers on Bougainville (Mason or Read) at night,
                  on their last pass they crashed into a mountain. A few survived and were
                  evacuated via sub later. This is also recounted in Minty's book. When things
                  settled down later after the allied invasion one of the coastwatcher
                  (Robbie Robinson & Co?) returned to the site and buried the pilots who were
                  killed instantly by the impact. An example of the respect these courageous men
                  had for each other. Brave men indeed.
                  Jacob Vouza, one of Clemen's scouts (the one that was bayoneted and left for
                  dead but made it back to Henderson to warn of an immanent attack).

                    Abandon Ship (USS Indianapolis)
                    By: Richard Newcomb
                    Discription of PBY part by Hank Aries, (N7GGC)
                    Factual book, the OA10 on scene was Richard C. Alcorn of 4th ERS on Pelieu
                    who arrived at twilight and picked up one man but had to shut down because
                    of danger of taxi-ing into others. Lt. Marks was taken on tour of scene by
                    PV standing by and was able to land in daylight in vicinity of large group
                    and elected to go after most vulnerable single sailors as groups together
                    had better odds. They picked up 54 taxi-ing around and at dark ARM3/c Roland
                    Shepard and S1/c Warren Kirchoff volunteered and went out in raft and got
                    2 more. The USS Doyle picked up these 56 + 1 from 4th ERS. It took 2 hours
                    to transfer from Lt Marks PBY to Doyle without smashing it. Marks crew then
                    stayed aboard rest of night and removed priority gear as plane was damaged
                    from bumps from Doyle. In light of day Marks crew and salvaged gear were
                    picked up and PBY sunk by gunfire. Our crew Lt Marmon and Lt Mykland arrived
                    from Ulithi on that day along with planes and ships from all over area.
                    Last part deals with court martial of Capt Mcvey.

                    ALONE ON GUADALCANAL
                    By Martin Clemens.
                    It is a fabulous story by probably the most heralded of all the coastwatchers.
                    It is put together from a diary he kept during the Guadalcanal campaign and is
                    extremely well written. Not only is it a great read, it also contains many
                    references to Catalina flights in the Solomons. For all who get this one,
                    it will provide a unique and eye opening perspective on the Solomons campaign.
                    Clemens goes into detail about the PBY-5 they hauled out of the water.
                    By the way, as far as I know he is still alive and living in a suburb of
                    Melbourne, Australia. He is a hero to the American marines 3rd Division and
                    it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

                    There is a photograph of a couple of RAAF types making adjustments

                    page 60-61 of note is each rocket provided 1000lb of thrust - the RAAF tests
                    were with Aerojet Type 12AS-1000D solid propellent rocket bottles -
                    4 were used - 2 per side to the rear of the fuselage - the year seems
                    to be 1948 and the purpose to use the Cat for stores at Macquarie Island -
                    "The Cat A24-104 departed Hobart, and after a seen and half hour flight
                    made a succesful rough water landing and then departed in very adverse
                    conditions with the assistance of the JATO gear" The article also noted
                    earlier US tests were with 8 rockets in the original design.

                    were able to carry out bombing raids and rescue missions as far away as the
                    coast of China. In researching this history of the RAAF Catalina flying boats
                    based in Cairns, Karumba, Darwin and Melville Bay during WWII, and the men
                    who flew and looked after them, the author has drawn on interviews with many

                    Miller was called a "One man Task Force" and was even recommended
                    for the Medal of Honor. Unconfirmed reports indicate that he
                    got smashed the night before Pres Roosevelt was to award it to
                    him and he missed the "Appointment"!!

                    Lonely Vigil (about Coastwatchers)
                    By: Lord.
                    Mentions Clemens and his men hauling a Cat out of the water onto the coast
                    of Guadalcanal to hide it from the enemy, I don't think it was one of the
                    amphibious types either!!! Also a sad story about an Ozzy Black Cat
                    supplying some coastwatchers on Bougainville (Mason or Read) at night,
                    on their last pass they crashed into a mountain. A few survived and were
                    evacuated via sub later. This is also recounted in Minty's book. When things
                    settled down later after the allied invasion one of the coastwatcher
                    (Robbie Robinson & Co?) returned to the site and buried the pilots who were
                    killed instantly by the impact. An example of the respect these courageous men
                    had for each other. Brave men indeed.
                    Jacob Vouza, one of Clemen's scouts (the one that was bayoneted and left for
                    dead but made it back to Henderson to warn of an immanent attack).

                      Discription of PBY part by Hank Aries, (N7GGC)
                      Factual book, the OA10 on scene was Richard C. Alcorn of 4th ERS on Pelieu
                      who arrived at twilight and picked up one man but had to shut down because
                      of danger of taxi-ing into others. Lt. Marks was taken on tour of scene by
                      PV standing by and was able to land in daylight in vicinity of large group
                      and elected to go after most vulnerable single sailors as groups together
                      had better odds. They picked up 54 taxi-ing around and at dark ARM3/c Roland
                      Shepard and S1/c Warren Kirchoff volunteered and went out in raft and got
                      2 more. The USS Doyle picked up these 56 + 1 from 4th ERS. It took 2 hours
                      to transfer from Lt Marks PBY to Doyle without smashing it. Marks crew then
                      stayed aboard rest of night and removed priority gear as plane was damaged
                      from bumps from Doyle. In light of day Marks crew and salvaged gear were
                      picked up and PBY sunk by gunfire. Our crew Lt Marmon and Lt Mykland arrived
                      from Ulithi on that day along with planes and ships from all over area.
                      Last part deals with court martial of Capt Mcvey.

                      ALONE ON GUADALCANAL
                      By Martin Clemens.
                      It is a fabulous story by probably the most heralded of all the coastwatchers.
                      It is put together from a diary he kept during the Guadalcanal campaign and is
                      extremely well written. Not only is it a great read, it also contains many
                      references to Catalina flights in the Solomons. For all who get this one,
                      it will provide a unique and eye opening perspective on the Solomons campaign.
                      Clemens goes into detail about the PBY-5 they hauled out of the water.
                      By the way, as far as I know he is still alive and living in a suburb of
                      Melbourne, Australia. He is a hero to the American marines 3rd Division and
                      it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

                      page 60-61 of note is each rocket provided 1000lb of thrust - the RAAF tests
                      were with Aerojet Type 12AS-1000D solid propellent rocket bottles -
                      4 were used - 2 per side to the rear of the fuselage - the year seems
                      to be 1948 and the purpose to use the Cat for stores at Macquarie Island -
                      "The Cat A24-104 departed Hobart, and after a seen and half hour flight
                      made a succesful rough water landing and then departed in very adverse
                      conditions with the assistance of the JATO gear" The article also noted
                      earlier US tests were with 8 rockets in the original design.

                      were able to carry out bombing raids and rescue missions as far away as the
                      coast of China. In researching this history of the RAAF Catalina flying boats
                      based in Cairns, Karumba, Darwin and Melville Bay during WWII, and the men
                      who flew and looked after them, the author has drawn on interviews with many
                      of the men involved as well as archival evidence"

                      Mentions Clemens and his men hauling a Cat out of the water onto the coast
                      of Guadalcanal to hide it from the enemy, I don't think it was one of the
                      amphibious types either!!! Also a sad story about an Ozzy Black Cat
                      supplying some coastwatchers on Bougainville (Mason or Read) at night,
                      on their last pass they crashed into a mountain. A few survived and were
                      evacuated via sub later. This is also recounted in Minty's book. When things
                      settled down later after the allied invasion one of the coastwatcher
                      (Robbie Robinson & Co?) returned to the site and buried the pilots who were
                      killed instantly by the impact. An example of the respect these courageous men
                      had for each other. Brave men indeed.
                      Jacob Vouza, one of Clemen's scouts (the one that was bayoneted and left for
                      dead but made it back to Henderson to warn of an immanent attack).

                      but to become an aviator. In P-Boat Pilot he describes his flight training,
                      his assignment to Patrol Squadron 73, and the Battle of the Atlantic as seen
                      from a patrol squadron based in Agadir, French Morocco.

                        Discription of PBY part by Hank Aries, (N7GGC)
                        Factual book, the OA10 on scene was Richard C. Alcorn of 4th ERS on Pelieu
                        who arrived at twilight and picked up one man but had to shut down because
                        of danger of taxi-ing into others. Lt. Marks was taken on tour of scene by
                        PV standing by and was able to land in daylight in vicinity of large group
                        and elected to go after most vulnerable single sailors as groups together
                        had better odds. They picked up 54 taxi-ing around and at dark ARM3/c Roland
                        Shepard and S1/c Warren Kirchoff volunteered and went out in raft and got
                        2 more. The USS Doyle picked up these 56 + 1 from 4th ERS. It took 2 hours
                        to transfer from Lt Marks PBY to Doyle without smashing it. Marks crew then
                        stayed aboard rest of night and removed priority gear as plane was damaged
                        from bumps from Doyle. In light of day Marks crew and salvaged gear were
                        picked up and PBY sunk by gunfire. Our crew Lt Marmon and Lt Mykland arrived
                        from Ulithi on that day along with planes and ships from all over area.
                        Last part deals with court martial of Capt Mcvey.

                        ALONE ON GUADALCANAL
                        By Martin Clemens.
                        It is a fabulous story by probably the most heralded of all the coastwatchers.
                        It is put together from a diary he kept during the Guadalcanal campaign and is
                        extremely well written. Not only is it a great read, it also contains many
                        references to Catalina flights in the Solomons. For all who get this one,
                        it will provide a unique and eye opening perspective on the Solomons campaign.
                        Clemens goes into detail about the PBY-5 they hauled out of the water.
                        By the way, as far as I know he is still alive and living in a suburb of
                        Melbourne, Australia. He is a hero to the American marines 3rd Division and
                        it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

                        page 60-61 of note is each rocket provided 1000lb of thrust - the RAAF tests
                        were with Aerojet Type 12AS-1000D solid propellent rocket bottles -
                        4 were used - 2 per side to the rear of the fuselage - the year seems
                        to be 1948 and the purpose to use the Cat for stores at Macquarie Island -
                        "The Cat A24-104 departed Hobart, and after a seen and half hour flight
                        made a succesful rough water landing and then departed in very adverse
                        conditions with the assistance of the JATO gear" The article also noted
                        earlier US tests were with 8 rockets in the original design.

                        Primarily about PB4Y's (Navy Liberator)---but it is a hellova book.
                        Miller was called a "One man Task Force" and was even recommended
                        for the Medal of Honor. Unconfirmed reports indicate that he
                        got smashed the night before Pres Roosevelt was to award it to
                        him and he missed the "Appointment"!!
                        Ergo----many medals for Bus Miller but no Medal of Honor.

                        Lonely Vigil (about Coastwatchers)
                        By: Lord.
                        Mentions Clemens and his men hauling a Cat out of the water onto the coast
                        of Guadalcanal to hide it from the enemy, I don't think it was one of the
                        amphibious types either!!! Also a sad story about an Ozzy Black Cat
                        supplying some coastwatchers on Bougainville (Mason or Read) at night,
                        on their last pass they crashed into a mountain. A few survived and were
                        evacuated via sub later. This is also recounted in Minty's book. When things
                        settled down later after the allied invasion one of the coastwatcher
                        (Robbie Robinson & Co?) returned to the site and buried the pilots who were
                        killed instantly by the impact. An example of the respect these courageous men
                        had for each other. Brave men indeed.
                        Jacob Vouza, one of Clemen's scouts (the one that was bayoneted and left for
                        dead but made it back to Henderson to warn of an immanent attack).

                        but to become an aviator. In P-Boat Pilot he describes his flight training,
                        his assignment to Patrol Squadron 73, and the Battle of the Atlantic as seen
                        from a patrol squadron based in Agadir, French Morocco.

                          Discription of PBY part by Hank Aries, (N7GGC)
                          Factual book, the OA10 on scene was Richard C. Alcorn of 4th ERS on Pelieu
                          who arrived at twilight and picked up one man but had to shut down because
                          of danger of taxi-ing into others. Lt. Marks was taken on tour of scene by
                          PV standing by and was able to land in daylight in vicinity of large group
                          and elected to go after most vulnerable single sailors as groups together
                          had better odds. They picked up 54 taxi-ing around and at dark ARM3/c Roland
                          Shepard and S1/c Warren Kirchoff volunteered and went out in raft and got
                          2 more. The USS Doyle picked up these 56 + 1 from 4th ERS. It took 2 hours
                          to transfer from Lt Marks PBY to Doyle without smashing it. Marks crew then
                          stayed aboard rest of night and removed priority gear as plane was damaged
                          from bumps from Doyle. In light of day Marks crew and salvaged gear were
                          picked up and PBY sunk by gunfire. Our crew Lt Marmon and Lt Mykland arrived
                          from Ulithi on that day along with planes and ships from all over area.
                          Last part deals with court martial of Capt Mcvey.

                          ALONE ON GUADALCANAL
                          By Martin Clemens.
                          It is a fabulous story by probably the most heralded of all the coastwatchers.
                          It is put together from a diary he kept during the Guadalcanal campaign and is
                          extremely well written. Not only is it a great read, it also contains many
                          references to Catalina flights in the Solomons. For all who get this one,
                          it will provide a unique and eye opening perspective on the Solomons campaign.
                          Clemens goes into detail about the PBY-5 they hauled out of the water.
                          By the way, as far as I know he is still alive and living in a suburb of
                          Melbourne, Australia. He is a hero to the American marines 3rd Division and
                          it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

                          were with Aerojet Type 12AS-1000D solid propellent rocket bottles -
                          4 were used - 2 per side to the rear of the fuselage - the year seems
                          to be 1948 and the purpose to use the Cat for stores at Macquarie Island -
                          "The Cat A24-104 departed Hobart, and after a seen and half hour flight
                          made a succesful rough water landing and then departed in very adverse
                          conditions with the assistance of the JATO gear" The article also noted
                          earlier US tests were with 8 rockets in the original design.

                          were able to carry out bombing raids and rescue missions as far away as the
                          coast of China. In researching this history of the RAAF Catalina flying boats
                          based in Cairns, Karumba, Darwin and Melville Bay during WWII, and the men
                          who flew and looked after them, the author has drawn on interviews with many
                          of the men involved as well as archival evidence"

                          Primarily about PB4Y's (Navy Liberator)---but it is a hellova book.
                          Miller was called a "One man Task Force" and was even recommended
                          for the Medal of Honor. Unconfirmed reports indicate that he
                          got smashed the night before Pres Roosevelt was to award it to
                          him and he missed the "Appointment"!!
                          Ergo----many medals for Bus Miller but no Medal of Honor.

                          Lonely Vigil (about Coastwatchers)
                          By: Lord.
                          Mentions Clemens and his men hauling a Cat out of the water onto the coast
                          of Guadalcanal to hide it from the enemy, I don't think it was one of the
                          amphibious types either!!! Also a sad story about an Ozzy Black Cat
                          supplying some coastwatchers on Bougainville (Mason or Read) at night,
                          on their last pass they crashed into a mountain. A few survived and were
                          evacuated via sub later. This is also recounted in Minty's book. When things
                          settled down later after the allied invasion one of the coastwatcher
                          (Robbie Robinson & Co?) returned to the site and buried the pilots who were
                          killed instantly by the impact. An example of the respect these courageous men
                          had for each other. Brave men indeed.
                          Jacob Vouza, one of Clemen's scouts (the one that was bayoneted and left for
                          dead but made it back to Henderson to warn of an immanent attack).

                            By: Richard Newcomb
                            Discription of PBY part by Hank Aries, (N7GGC)
                            Factual book, the OA10 on scene was Richard C. Alcorn of 4th ERS on Pelieu
                            who arrived at twilight and picked up one man but had to shut down because
                            of danger of taxi-ing into others. Lt. Marks was taken on tour of scene by
                            PV standing by and was able to land in daylight in vicinity of large group
                            and elected to go after most vulnerable single sailors as groups together
                            had better odds. They picked up 54 taxi-ing around and at dark ARM3/c Roland
                            Shepard and S1/c Warren Kirchoff volunteered and went out in raft and got
                            2 more. The USS Doyle picked up these 56 + 1 from 4th ERS. It took 2 hours
                            to transfer from Lt Marks PBY to Doyle without smashing it. Marks crew then
                            stayed aboard rest of night and removed priority gear as plane was damaged
                            from bumps from Doyle. In light of day Marks crew and salvaged gear were
                            picked up and PBY sunk by gunfire. Our crew Lt Marmon and Lt Mykland arrived
                            from Ulithi on that day along with planes and ships from all over area.
                            Last part deals with court martial of Capt Mcvey.

                            ALONE ON GUADALCANAL
                            By Martin Clemens.
                            It is a fabulous story by probably the most heralded of all the coastwatchers.
                            It is put together from a diary he kept during the Guadalcanal campaign and is
                            extremely well written. Not only is it a great read, it also contains many
                            references to Catalina flights in the Solomons. For all who get this one,
                            it will provide a unique and eye opening perspective on the Solomons campaign.
                            Clemens goes into detail about the PBY-5 they hauled out of the water.
                            By the way, as far as I know he is still alive and living in a suburb of
                            Melbourne, Australia. He is a hero to the American marines 3rd Division and
                            it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

                            page 60-61 of note is each rocket provided 1000lb of thrust - the RAAF tests
                            were with Aerojet Type 12AS-1000D solid propellent rocket bottles -
                            4 were used - 2 per side to the rear of the fuselage - the year seems
                            to be 1948 and the purpose to use the Cat for stores at Macquarie Island -
                            "The Cat A24-104 departed Hobart, and after a seen and half hour flight
                            made a succesful rough water landing and then departed in very adverse
                            conditions with the assistance of the JATO gear" The article also noted
                            earlier US tests were with 8 rockets in the original design.

                            "From their bases in the north coast, Australians of 11 and 20 Squadrons
                            were able to carry out bombing raids and rescue missions as far away as the
                            coast of China. In researching this history of the RAAF Catalina flying boats
                            based in Cairns, Karumba, Darwin and Melville Bay during WWII, and the men
                            who flew and looked after them, the author has drawn on interviews with many
                            of the men involved as well as archival evidence"

                            Miller was called a "One man Task Force" and was even recommended
                            for the Medal of Honor. Unconfirmed reports indicate that he
                            got smashed the night before Pres Roosevelt was to award it to
                            him and he missed the "Appointment"!!
                            Ergo----many medals for Bus Miller but no Medal of Honor.

                            of Guadalcanal to hide it from the enemy, I don't think it was one of the
                            amphibious types either!!! Also a sad story about an Ozzy Black Cat
                            supplying some coastwatchers on Bougainville (Mason or Read) at night,
                            on their last pass they crashed into a mountain. A few survived and were
                            evacuated via sub later. This is also recounted in Minty's book. When things
                            settled down later after the allied invasion one of the coastwatcher
                            (Robbie Robinson & Co?) returned to the site and buried the pilots who were
                            killed instantly by the impact. An example of the respect these courageous men

                            From the moment Pearl Harbor was attacked, Robert L. Carlisle wanted nothing
                            but to become an aviator. In P-Boat Pilot he describes his flight training,
                            his assignment to Patrol Squadron 73, and the Battle of the Atlantic as seen
                            from a patrol squadron based in Agadir, French Morocco.
