Says a lot of the Fleet elements have done a quick turnaround at Pearl after Coral Sea and headed back out in anticipation of IJN activity at Midway. Promoted to LTJG, training is intensifying...

Very large entry today. LtJg Nolan's first taste of combat at Midway as the Battle of Midway begins...

The July 7 entry was promising as a long awaited follow-up to what happened to some of the folks at Midway but something was lost in transcription. It's as if the diary entry was written in another language and translated back to English using a poor web translator with a PC filter? A disappointing transcription...That, or to badly paraphrase Ahrnold, "I tink I hahv a toooma..." :shock:

Ahhh! It's been corrected. A lot better and a good read now. Editor was using a speech-to-text program caught mid-edit.

This last post sure takes another whack at the AAF - I wonder what Nolan thought about Gen. Tinker getting a base named after him?

Yup, dodged a toomah bullet. Knock wood! Yeah... a common return comment that he, and the Navy in general, wasn't too happy with the AAF having the "rottenest navigators" pissing away aircraft the Navy would be happy to have to replace some of their tired iron. Or, the Admiral who commented the right aircraft had the wrong pilots at Midway. 'Course he was fair when he felt the Nav screwed-the-pooch! As for Nolan's opinion on Tinker, I guess we'll see how long this diary goes or if there are any post-war entries when Tinker is renamed in '48.
