24th July, 1945

Near midnight on the 22nd a Japanese convoy moving under heavy rainclouds suddenly it came upon eight American destroyers about 20 kilometers off the southern end of Boso peninsula. Following an engagement of some 20 minutes “the enemy was routed to the south” while “a small fire was caused on one of the Nippon transports”. Such was the Japanese announcement today. The Americans for their part have announced wiping out the convoy.
