Title

US Naval War Diary (September, 1943)

Description

During wartime, Naval stations keep daily logs of activities on the base. For Palmyra, this generally consisted of arrivals and departures, with the occasional visit or stopover by a ranking general or political figure, and the documenting of fatal accidents and crashes, especially those resulting in the search for missing aircraft and crewmen. While not the most exciting reading, they offer a unique view into daily life on the atoll during the war.
