USS Wasp Sinking

Mid-September found Wasp sailing with Hornet and the battleship USS North Carolina (BB-55) to provide an escort for transports carrying the 7th Marine Regiment to Guadalcanal. At 2:44 PM on September 15, Wasp was conducting flight operations when six torpedoes were spotted in the water. Fired by the Japanese submarine I-19, three struck Wasp despite the carrier turning hard to starboard. Lacking sufficient torpedo protection, the carrier took severe damage as all struck fuel tanks and ammunition supplies. Of the other three torpedoes, one hit the destroyer USS O'Brien while another struck North Carolina.

Aboard Wasp, the crew desperately attempted to control the spreading fires but damage to the ship's water mains prevented them from having success. Additional explosions occurred twenty-four minutes after the attack making the situation worse. Seeing no alternative, Sherman ordered Wasp abandoned at 3:20 PM. The survivors were taken off by nearby destroyers and cruisers. In the course of the attack and attempts to fight the fires, 193 men were killed. A burning hulk, Wasp was finished off by torpedoes from the destroyer USS Lansdowne and sunk by the bow at 9:00 PM.

Reserve SS Platoon /Kuebelwagon deploy on Road

1. Advance Fire Phase:
a. SS Squad Advance Fire vs Russian 447 Squad
SS Squad 4 Fire Power Halved after Moving / 4 FP to 2 Fire Power
Point Blank Fire Double 2 Fire Power to 4 Fire Power Column
b. 4 Fire Power attack Dice Roll 3 / Russian 447 in Wood TEM receives + 1 TEM modifier to Attack Dice Roll/ 3 added TEM Modifier +1 = 4
c. 4 line of 4 Fire Power Column = 1 Morale Check for Russian 447 Squad/
d. Morale Check Dice Roll 3+1 =4 / added Morale Check Modifier + 1 = 5/ Less than 447 Morale Level 7/ Pass Morale Check
2. Rout Phase: Broken Units under DM must Rout away if next to Opposing Unit/ SS Broken Squad Routs back to Wood Hex Shown
3. Advance Phase: SS Squad Advance into Close Combat vs Russian 447
a. Ambush can occur in Woods or Building
b. both Squads roll one die/ to determine if Ambush occured
c. compare die rolls/ if one die roll is 3 LESS, compared to the other die roll/ that Side has Ambushed the opposing Unit/s
example: die roll one 3 vs die roll 6/ 3 is 3 less than 6 /result of Unit that rolled 3 Ambushes the other Unit/ Attacker or Defender
If No Ambush Occurs/Attacker resolves Close Combat Attack First/Then Defender resolves Close Combat vs Attacking Unit/s
Close Combat is Semi Simultaneous
If Attacker Close Combat Dice Roll eliminates Defender/ Defending Unit/s / part of same action/ Then make a Defender Close Combat
Dice Roll vs Close Combat Attacker/ results/if any/ are then Applied vs Attacking Unit/s
4. Calculating Close Combat odds:
The Fire Power of Attacking Units is added up : EX 467 Squad x 3 = 12/ Each Squad 4 Fire Power/Advance into Close Combat
vs 527 Squad x 3 =15
a. Check Close Combat Table: Odds Column: 12 Fire Power Compared to 15 / 12 is Less than 15
12 Less than 15, does Not compare as even ,Odds
The Next closest Odds Column is 1-2 / Close Combat # 4
By Rule : Select Nearest Close Combat Odds Column compared to Fire Power Factors of Close Combat Units
b. Reverse of Example: 527 Squad x 3 = 15 vs 467 x 3 =12
15 compared to 12
Nearest Odds Column 1-1 would not Apply / with 15 is More than 12
select Next highest Odds Column 3-2
2-1 Odds Column Would not Apply / 15 is Not Twice as High as 12
c. Basic Rule: Select Nearest Odds Column even if Fire power Factors are left over:
Example: 5 FP vs 8 FP = 1-2
8FP vs 5 FP = 3-2
4 FP vs 4 FP = 1-1
5 FP vs 4 FP = 3-2

1941-1959 Deck Logs, including World War II and the Korean War

Logs dating from the 1941-1959 period typically include a monthly title sheet, daily remarks sheets, and daily columnar sheets. Through spring 1956, most logs also contain monthly officer lists. The list of officers typically provides the name, rank, date of reporting on board, primary duties, and name and address of next of kin for each officer assigned to the vessel. Officer lists were sometimes omitted, however, especially in the case of small vessels. Beginning in the spring of 1956, officer data is entered into the ship's muster rolls (but in a different format).

Deck log remarks sheets contain chronological accounts of events or other data that was considered important, including when changes in course and speed occurred important landmarks were sighted boilers were engaged or shut down exercises were conducted provisions or fuel were received. The typical log from 1941-1959 also indicates when personnel were transferred, received, or returned from leave, and may also briefly describe actions engaged in and list crewmen wounded or killed in action. They also contain information on disciplinary actions that occurred on board the ship, such as deck courts and courts martial. This includes the name(s) of the accused, the charges, verdict and sentence, but not the details of the proceedings. Logs from this period also usually contain an entry when a report of an injury to a crewman was received, with a brief description of the injury, the initial treatment, and whether or not the crewman was immediately returned to duty.

Entries on the remarks sheet generally appear in four-hour blocks that correspond to the major "watches" 0400 - 0800, called the morning watch 0800 - 1200, the forenoon watch 1200 - 1600, the afternoon watch 1600 - 2000, the dog watch and 2000 - 2400, the first watch. Each block of entries was signed by the officer of the deck, usually a junior officer (often an ensign or lieutenant [junior grade]), and approved by the navigation officer.

Columnar sheets contain spaces for filling in the name and/or hull number of the vessel, the date, and detailed meteorological, hydrographic, and navigational data. This data includes wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, air and water temperature, cloud type and altitude, visibility and overall weather conditions, as well as latitude and longitude, amount of fuel and water expended and remaining on hand, the hull's draft, and temperature in the ship's magazines. Columnar sheets were not always filled in, however.

Some smaller vessels, usually unnamed, submitted small-format "patrol logs" during World War II, and these small volumes typically include a title page, a list of officers and enlisted personnel, and remarks pages that feature spaces for filling in weather information at the top of each page. This data includes wind direction and speed, barometric pressure, air temperature, state of weather and clouds, and general sea conditions. The personnel lists typically contain notations indicating when each officer or enlisted man reported aboard the vessel, and, if it occurred during the period covered by that particular log, when they transferred.
