“Cactus,” Carney Field, Guadalcanal

Over 600 planes in this area (Henderson, Carney, #1 and #2 fighter strips and the Russell strip). The big push shouldn’t be far off. The planes are still coming in. B-17s and P-38s today.

Went swimming down on the excellent beach at Koli Point this afternoon. Patrol tomorrow.
