Folks,

We’ll be continuing with the Guadalcanal naval campaign again this month.

The situation on Guadalcanal still hangs in the balance despite some heavy losses on both sides over the previous months. The month will see the commanders making their decisions for October 1942.

Historically this was the month that the Japanese had their best, and last, chance to regain control of the island. Can Andy, Alistair & Mike Ritchie take control of Henderson airfield or will Mike T, John & Stuart S continue to build up their tenuous grip on the Island?
