Accounts For Jap
Ships In Pacific
The Philippines Lieut. Arcia O.
Turner, USN, of Tacoma, Wash., and
Hertford, was pilot of a Navy Black
Cat search plane which, during three
refent night patrols off the coast of
Formosa and the Pescadores, sank a
small Jap merchantman, severely
I damaged several others and left a

Because of low visibility and gen
erally poor search conditions, Lieut.
Turner had to make three approaches
before establishing visual contact on
the merchantman near Taonan, For
mosa. As a result, the enemy ship
was alerted and taking evasive ac
tion when the first bombing run was
made. A 500-pound bomb was laid
alongside, causing the vessel to stop
dead in the water. A second run was
made and this time two 500:pounders
straddled the ship, singing her.
A few days later, this Catalina
seaplane of Aircraft, Seventh Fleet,
in a tenacious attack which lasted
three and one-half hours, damaged
the Jap transport and two small mer
chantmen near Takao, Formosa.
The merchantmen were effectively
strafed on the approach to the main
target. The transport was bombed
and a fire started in the forward
hold of the ship. Two more 500
pounders stopped the vessel and with
a final burst of strafing, she was left
settling at the stern.
Another patrol-bombing mission
resulted in Lieut. Turner's finding
several medium-sized merchant ships
and numerous small craft in Mako
Harbor, Pescadores. Sweeping down
through a hail of intense anti-aircraft,
the Catalina dropped two
bombs and one incendiary cluster on
a medium merchantman. The plane
was hit from bow to stern and two
men suffered leg wounds. Neverthe
less, neither the engines nor the con
trols were damaged, so Lieut. Turner
dropped the remainder of h,is bombs
on buildings in the Pescadores be
fore setting his course for home.
Upon arrival, 65 holes were counted
in the hull as a result of the intense
