DUEL AT KOKAJ ROCK

In the background, Seventh USAAF B-25G pilot Gene Olsen (48th Bomb Sqdn./41st Bomb Group) Fires the 75mm cannon that his aircraft carries at the Japanese coastal defense gun atop Jokaj Rock, as the Japanese return fire…a duel which was repeated on several occaisions prior to this date, 26 March, 1944.

VMF-113 Corsairs which escorted the B-25s on this date can be seen sweeping around the 700 foot-high volcanic rock outcropping which dominates the entrance to the harbor at Ponapeh…on their way to the nearby Imperial Japanese Navy airfield to battle the Zeroes which had been harassing the B-25s on previous unescorted missions to this target. VMF-113 USMC Corsair ace Frank Drury, of Guadalcanal fame can be seen in the foreground in #64, with Lt. J. Shellack, in #44 on Captain Drury's left wing. Beyond Jokaj Rock, a small portion of Ponapeh Town can be seen. Another view of this area is seen from the opposite direction in the picture of the Zeroes, below. Both the 48th Bomb Sqdn. B-25s and the VMF-113 Corsairs flew from Eniwetok, in the Marshalls Group to Ponapeh, in the Carolines Group.

The Antagonists:
Frank Drury, Capt. USMC, VMF-113
