      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).

      Larry Katz remarks:
      There are over three hundred interviews with Pearl Harbor Survivors.
      Dont know how many of us are left since he started this three years ago.
      Just thought I would pass this information on for some of you that would
      be interested in Pearl Harbor.
      Breakdown, Interviews with some Pearl Harbor Survivors,
      Interviews with different people all over the States regarding
      what they did and where they were at on Dec,7th,1941.
      I found it very good. Especially the chapter on me,
      I got bigger reveiws than George H.W.Bush.
      In fact he got about four pages, I got 9. Larry Katz.

        (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).

        Larry Katz remarks:
        There are over three hundred interviews with Pearl Harbor Survivors.
        Dont know how many of us are left since he started this three years ago.
        Just thought I would pass this information on for some of you that would
        be interested in Pearl Harbor.
        Breakdown, Interviews with some Pearl Harbor Survivors,
        Interviews with different people all over the States regarding
        what they did and where they were at on Dec,7th,1941.
        I found it very good. Especially the chapter on me,
        I got bigger reveiws than George H.W.Bush.
        In fact he got about four pages, I got 9. Larry Katz.

          By: Lord.

          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

            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).

              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).

              Larry Katz remarks:
              There are over three hundred interviews with Pearl Harbor Survivors.
              Dont know how many of us are left since he started this three years ago.
              Just thought I would pass this information on for some of you that would
              be interested in Pearl Harbor.
              Breakdown, Interviews with some Pearl Harbor Survivors,
              Interviews with different people all over the States regarding
              what they did and where they were at on Dec,7th,1941.
              I found it very good. Especially the chapter on me,
              I got bigger reveiws than George H.W.Bush.
              In fact he got about four pages, I got 9. Larry Katz.

              Where the Williwaw Blows
              Dr. Feinberg
              Based on Dr. Feinberg�s two-year stint (1944-45) as a naval officer on the
              island of Adak in the Aleutians. In this darkly humorous novel,
              Feinberg turns a sardonic eye on the foibles of military life
              while he memorializes the quiet heroism of some of the men who were
              stationed on one of the bleakest military outposts of World War II.

                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

                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.

                dead but made it back to Henderson to warn of an immanent attack).

                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.

                Larry Katz remarks:
                There are over three hundred interviews with Pearl Harbor Survivors.
                Dont know how many of us are left since he started this three years ago.
                Just thought I would pass this information on for some of you that would
                be interested in Pearl Harbor.
                Breakdown, Interviews with some Pearl Harbor Survivors,
                Interviews with different people all over the States regarding
                what they did and where they were at on Dec,7th,1941.
                I found it very good. Especially the chapter on me,
                I got bigger reveiws than George H.W.Bush.
                In fact he got about four pages, I got 9. Larry Katz.

                Where the Williwaw Blows
                Dr. Feinberg
                Based on Dr. Feinberg�s two-year stint (1944-45) as a naval officer on the
                island of Adak in the Aleutians. In this darkly humorous novel,
                Feinberg turns a sardonic eye on the foibles of military life
                while he memorializes the quiet heroism of some of the men who were
                stationed on one of the bleakest military outposts of World War II.

                  for the Medal of Honor. Unconfirmed reports indicate that he
                  got smashed the night before Pres Roosevelt was to award it to

                  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.

                  There are over three hundred interviews with Pearl Harbor Survivors.
                  Dont know how many of us are left since he started this three years ago.
                  Just thought I would pass this information on for some of you that would
                  be interested in Pearl Harbor.

                  I found it very good. Especially the chapter on me,
                  I got bigger reveiws than George H.W.Bush.

                  Subtitled 'Memoirs of Wartime Service 1939-45'. Robert F Honan was born in South Australia in 1918 and joined the RAAF in 1941, after a stint in the 48th Battalion Militia. He gained his wings at Parafield SA flying DH60 Gypsy Moths and DH82 Tiger Moths, and then advanced training in Avro Ansons at Mallala SA and seaplane conversion at Rathmines flying Sikorsky Kingfishers. After becoming a 2nd pilot on PBY Catalina flying boats he was posted to 11 Squadron based at Cairns, Qld. From here long raids were flown (some over 20 hours flying time) to attack Japanese shipping and installations in the islands to the north of Australia. Laying magnetic mines in enemy held harbours, secret long range recon missions from Dutch New Guinea (Irian Jaya) as well as anti-submarine patrols and convoy protection. Later detachments were sent to Darwin NT to attack targets on Java, the Halmaheras, Irian Jaya including one mission to Sourabaya, Java which, with refuelling stops, took 48 hours. On completion of his tour in 1944 Honan flew to the US where he ferried PBYs back to Australia and then became an instructor at RAAF Bairnsdale.

                  Not just a diary Bob Honan tells his story, and covers all the various stages experienced by him, and 1000s of others, until the war was over. The savagery of the tropical weather which he flew in is bought out along with the intensity of Japanese resistance when over the target and the tiredness in body and mind that accumulated in the men from the long exhausting flights.

                  Where the Williwaw Blows
                  Dr. Feinberg
                  Based on Dr. Feinberg�s two-year stint (1944-45) as a naval officer on the
                  island of Adak in the Aleutians. In this darkly humorous novel,
                  Feinberg turns a sardonic eye on the foibles of military life
                  while he memorializes the quiet heroism of some of the men who were
                  stationed on one of the bleakest military outposts of World War II.
