“Sept 13 – Got underway at 9:30 A.M. Arrived at Wakde that night to pick up convoy.”
Alright so what I find interesting about this is he did not use military time, he wrote “9:30 A.M.”. In military time this would be 0930 eliminating the need to use A.M. or P.M.
So he said he “Arrived at Wakde that night to pick up convoy.”. Wakde is an Island about 225 miles east of Biak Island, which is where he was at before this. Wakde is a fairly small island group within Indonesia. It was used as an airfield by allied forces.
Here is more information on Wakde and where I found the map image of it
Here is information on the battle that took place to take it over from the Japanese, prior to Mike going there
Here is where I found the aerial view picture of the island
