Every day Army bombers operating from
the nearby Andreanof Islands attacked either shipping or
shore installations and often both..
Fast-flying Army Marauder bombers (B-26) were
prominently in action. With no reported enemy aircraft
opposition they made low-level attacks on Jap destroyers
near Kiska on two separate occasions. They probably sank
three and damaged a fourth. Two Marauders were lost.
Earlier Kiska was hit by Army Liberator bombers (B-24)

Three enemy seaplanes were destroyed.

anced in the same report with the announcement that our
planes made bomb hits on a Jap cruiser and destroyer.

A minor enemy thrust against our western positions
on Guadalcanal was repulsed, the Navy reported, with no
material change in the situation. Large numbers of enemy
ships, battleships as well as transports, continued in evidence
in the northwest islands and the Japs were using
fast destroyers to supply their land units on Guadalcanal
which had artillery.
The attacks and counterattacks were a continuously
developing action. Our long range bombers operating
under Gen. MacArthur made daily raids on enemy plane
and ship bases in the Western Solomons.
Enemy planes repeatedly tried to knock out the flying
field on Guadalcanal from which our planes were operating.
One Jap tactic was to make two raids, one following
the other. These were timed to catch our fighters on the

gjyPSE W Uyagiacross the Owen Stanley
fMountains moved steadily northward. Japanese
troops were able to put up light artillery and mortar fire
in an effort to block the advance some ten miles from their
base at Kokoda but the effort was unsuccessful. A series
of flanking and encircling attacks drove the Japs back and
it appeared as though their next serious blocking attempt
would be made from Kokoda.
Our heavy bomber raids on New Britain Island, meanwhile,
kept coming. These raids by Flying Fortresses
which hit the enemy harbor and airfield facilities were directly
linked with the Solomons action as well as the New
Guinea fight. On Northern New Britain the Japs used
Rabaul as a midway point for forwarding supplies to the
many outlying bases and it was Rabaul which was repeatedly
struck.
