      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.

      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.

      Catalina, Neptune, and Orion;
      in Australian Service.
      By: Stewart Wilson
      ISBN: 0-9587978-7-0
      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"

      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).
