Air action over this area between Sirte and Misurata
continued on a small scale but American long-range
fighter planes peppered Rommel's forces moving out of
Tripoli towards the Tunisian border. These P-38's flew
250 miles west of the furthest Allied advance in Tunisia
and wrecked 21 enemy trucks about 30 miles west of
Tripoli. These trucks were carrying gasoline and supplies,
indicating that Rommel was reinforcing the units already
fighting in Tunisia.
NEm W GULlINEA: Allied troops on Northeast
New Guinea repulsed Japanese
counterattacks and made further small gains
against the encircled Japanese fortified bunkers near Buna.
A day earlier, enemy warships, probably submarines, attempting
to relieve pressure on their ground defenders,
shelled Allied-held Buna village five hours in a night attack.
Enemy ground positions near Buna now reportedly cover
only a few hundred yards.
Air action, meanwhile, continued on a widespread scale.
The big Jap base at Rabaul, on New Britain Island, was
bombed by Flying Fortresses from Henderson Field on
Guadalcanal, and by bombers from Gen. MacArthur's
command which wrecked a Jap cruiser. Catalina flying
boats raided the airdrome at Kavieng on New Ireland.
Other planes hit Gasmata, on New Britain, Laivai and
Guiloro, on the Island of Timor and Lae and Salamaua
on New Guinea.
In their first showing on the Buna front 12 U. S. P-38
fighters ripped into a formation of 40 Jap planes supporting
their beleaguered troops. Our fighters knocked down
15 enemy planes and suffered only slight damage to one

Looking past a shell-battered palm tree in the Southwest Pacific few sights
are fairer for American fighting men than this one of another transport standing
in the deep waters offshore and emptying its hold of material from home.

NORTH AFRICA: Rain and electrical storms
limited both ground and
air action in Northern Tunisia. Despite the storms,
Allied bombers were able to maintain almost constant
attacks against Axis supply ports at Tunis, Bizerte, Sousse
and Sfax as well as strafing and bombing enemy inshore
supply points and tank depots.
In land action, significant because it showed the strength
of the Axis in the area, Allied troops withdrew from a
hill six miles northeast of Medjes El Bab on the road to
Tunis after inflicting severe casualties on the enemy.
Lively skirmishing was reported almost continuously
along the roads leading towards Axis-held ports on the
