TCS Guadalcanal :Bloody Ridge 1942 September 12th


Shots of the Op sheet and initial start positions of the USMC. All units are in PD or Dug In positions.
Its 2000 HR. The Japanese are coming tonight.
Where I state x2x I meant to place red X’s. In essence the line they are on.

Spooky stuff.
Night time battle no arty, little or no visibility, no illum shells.
The Japs have to hit us hard and early, as @ 0600 we get air support. This is one time that ‘rush’ to contact might make sense.

However even if the Japanese capture the Hills. The USMC has the 2/5 as reinforcements and Arty coming., we cna wipe the hilltop….if they stay up there.
