      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.

          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.

            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.

              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
              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"

                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.

                  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
                  of the men involved as well as archival evidence"

                    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"

                      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
                      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"

                        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.

                        who flew and looked after them, the author has drawn on interviews with many

                          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"

                            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

                            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"

                              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.

                              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

                              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"

                                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.

                                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.

                                  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.

                                    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.

                                    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

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

                                      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.

                                      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

                                      it would be wonderful to hear him speak. desciption by Richard Douglass.

                                      Shetlands, was selected to carry out a series of highly secret operations,
                                      including a flight to the North Pole. The sorties were associated with a
                                      Norwegian expedition from Britain to Spitsbergen, to deny the use of the
                                      territory to the enemy. The flights made by the crew were frequently
                                      over 24 hours in length and reached the limits of human endurance,
                                      in conditions of extreme cold. Later, the squadron was detached to North
                                      Russia, to provide cover for the convoys taking vital supplies to our
                                      Allies on the Eastern Front. The navigator of the crew, Ernest Schofield,
                                      has retained the logs of most of these sorties. Together with other survivors
