Gordon Manuel recorded in his diary:
May 23, 1942: Today I installed the bomb sight in the ship it sure looks like a honey.
May 24 1942: This morning I made my first flight around the island.. It sure is very picturesque. The islands are all hills and mountains there are little towns all around the coastline the largest town is Nouméa, the capital. We had machine gun practice. We fired at an old merchant ship that had been run up on a coral reef. I fired over 100 rounds at it."
