Off JavaEdit

In March 1942, two Japanese aircraft attempt to bomb a civilian US freighter in the vicinity of a squall in the Java Sea. Neither bomb hits, but one aircraft explodes and seriously damages the vessel.


In late March 1943, Captain Matthew Reddy sails from Baalkpan in the frigate Donaghey. He and others board Achilles and meet with Captain Harvey Jenks. Jenks is delighted that Rebecca Anne McDonald is safe and wants to leave immediately to return her to her parents. Becky refuses unless Jenks agrees in principal to an alliance between the Empire of New Britain Isles and the Combined Allied Forces. Courtney Bradford suggests that Becky remain until Walker is re-fitted and that Becky travel to her home with Reddy. Jenks reluctantly agrees and orders one of his other two ships to return home with news of Becky's safety.
