Australia-New Caledonia shipments supposedly leaving Charleston today. Part leaves West Coast in couple days. Have never had mich faith in New Caledonia garrison arriving there under current conditions. It goes via X.- My own opinion is that the whole works will be so badly needed by ABDA, we’ll never get this gang to Caledonia. However, we’ll see. In the meantime, I’m going to start making up another shipment for Far East.

Got Navy and Air Force together on question of getting torpedoes to X for B-26’s, and making sure crews were trained in case. None of the people I talked to seemed to know anything about the matter, but now everything possible seems done.
