It is 14 Apr 1943 THE H O L DING WAR obvious that he does not intend to accept his defeats without a great effort to wrest the initiative from us. In these circumstances it is a justifiable and indeed an unavoidable risk to weaken our defensive forces in areas most remote from the enemy in favour of concentrating such forces in areas in which they are most likely to be required. With this in view the forces in Australia are now in course of being disposed as follows: Queensland-Torres Strait Force (approximately one battalion group) , one armoured division, and brigades in movements to and from New Guinea (in addition the offensive force of three divisions and ancillary units is en route to or in training in the Atherton area) .

The Japanese force actually arrayed against the Australians in the Salamaua area o n 23rd April consisted of the remnants of the 1 ,500 troops from I and 11 Battalion s of the l02nd Regiment which had arrived in the Lae-Salamaua area in January 1 943, attacked Wau, and then withdrawn to Mubo. At the end of February /ll/102nd Battalion was dispatched to Nassau Bay to secure the left flank against either a seaborne or coastal attack. With headquarters at Komiatum Major-General Teru Okabe commanded this force.

Between New Guinea and Aus­ tralia was Torres Strait Force (Colonel Langford9) responsible for the defence of the islands in the strait. American forces under the control of New Guinea Force at this time included the 1 58th Regiment attached to the 1 1th Division in Port Moresby and the 4 1 st Division ( 1 62nd, 163rd and 1 8 6th Regiments) in the Oro Bay area. Back in Rockhampton Lieut-General Robert L. Eichel­ berger's I American Corps controlled only one division-the 32nd ( 126th, 127th, 1 28th Regiments) at Brisbane.
