      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.

      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.

        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.

          "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.

            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).

              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
              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).
