“Sept 29 – 3 red alerts, no raid”
In this one Mike talked about how three red alerts went out but there were not any raids.
I can not find any information about the exact meaning of a “red alert” during WWII or the alert systems that were used. My best guess is that red would be the highest tier in the alert system, and in Mike’s specific scenario most likely meant that a Japanese plane, ship, or unit of soldiers was extremely close by and would most likely start attacking. If I am wrong or you know more information please feel free to leave a comment down below and I will update this accordingly.
I’m guessing the Japanese choose not to attack in this case to try and scare Mike and the other soldiers, which would keep their anxiety levels high.
