    Hi,
    I'm looking for info about the bases of Marines squadrons in northern Solomons in october 1944.
    Till now I've found:

    Admiralties:
    79 RAAF, USN VS-61,VPB-146 and VPB-52 det.

    Emirau: USMC sqns
    3x VMF squadrons with FG/F4U (2 of them are VMF-115 and 211)
    2x VMSB with SBD
    2 VMB with PBJ (VMB-413, 443?)
    no. 3 RNZAF, USN VPB-137 both with PV

    Green:
    VMF-218,222 squadrons with FG/F4U
    VMSB-244,341 with SBD
    VMB-423 (PBJ)
    1 VPB sqn?

    Bougainville:

    3x VMF squadrons with FG/F4U
    2x VMSB with SBD
    VMR-152 ,153 with R4D
    USAAF 17th PhS det. with F-5A

    The Marines squadrons in the area with unknown location were at the time the VMF:

    212,223,VMO/VMF?-251 (MAG-14)
    and the VMSB:

    Can you locate the 4 VMF and the 4 VMSB squadrons?

    Thanks in advance
