Shown here is the Japanese heavy cruiser IJNS Haguro (foreground) under attack by aircraft of the 3rd Bomb Group, USAAF, at Simpson Harbour, Rabaul, New Britain, 2 November 1943. The burning transport at right appears to be one of the Hakone Maru class, of which the Hakone Maru, Hakozaki Maru and Hakusan Maru were still afloat at the time. The ship in the left distance, partially hidden by smoke, appears to be the submarine depot ship Chogei or Jingei. at Rabaul, 2 November 1943.
