WED 29 JUL 1942[Guessing (assuming, even) that second paragraph should be under the "Atlantic" heading. And the sinking of the Potlatch wasn't in the 27 JUN report.]
PBYs (VP 23) bomb Japanese bases in Tulagi-Gavutu area.
Survivors (47 in number, two merchant seamen having died during the 32-day ordeal in the 25-foot lifeboat) from U.S. freighter Potlatch, torpedoed and sunk by German submarine U-153 on 27 June, reach Great Inagua Island, the Bahamas group; their search for water will take them thence to Little Inagua, and thence to Aklins Island. Ultimately picked up by steamship Vergermere, they reach Nassau on 1 August.
