Number 316 ……. Cover: As was the case at Guadalcanal and the Russell Islands, American forces utilized captured Japanese equipment in their attacks and recapture of Attu. Among the booty taken at the small Aleutian outpost was this Japanese landing barge, captured at Massacre Bay. The American flag was secured to the staff and the boat was put to work against its former owners. Although smaller, the Jap boat is similar to the Higgins landing barge, two of which can be seen at the left. The bow opens in the same fashion for the discharge of troops and equipment. (For details of the battle for Attu, see p. 35.) ……. Articles Inside: ….. The ‘Amphibs’ Are Training to Strike ….. New V-12 Program Under Way …..
