On This Day...

1942
Japanese aircraft from four of the carriers which fought at Pearl Harbor, attack Darwin in Northern Australia. The Japanese encountered five USAAF P-40s, which had recently returned from an aborted mission and shot down all but one of the US planes. A total of 81 Nakajima B5N "Kate" torpedo bombers then attacked shipping — at least 45 vessels — in the harbor, while 71 Aichi D3A "Val" dive-bombers, escorted by 36 Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter planes attacked Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) bases, civil airfields, and a hospital. Two Vals were shot down by the remaining P-40, which managed to survive the attack. No Allied planes successfully took off and all were destroyed or rendered unable to fly after the first attack. The second wave was a high altitude attack by land-based bombers, concentrated on the Darwin RAAF Airfield: 27 Mitsubishi G3M "Nell" bombers flew from Ambon and 27 Mitsubishi G4M "Betty" from Kendari, Sulawesi. This second raid lasted for 20–25 minutes. 243 people were killed, 8 ships were sunk, and 24 planes destroyed in the raid.

1945
US Marines divisions land on Iwo Jima. In the Pacific Iwo Jima is strategically and politically significant to both sides. The Americans need the island as a fighter base (Mustangs P-51 fighters) for their Japanese raids (B-29's) and a relief base for damaged bombers. On the first day some 30,000 marines landed, the about 23,000 Japanese soldiers have prepared defences but allow the landing to take place before opening fire. Over the next two months 6,281 US soldiers are killed (in the first 2 days, 4,000 US soldiers died), and 21,865 are wounded in capturing the island from 23,000 defenders, 21,000 Japanese soldiers died.
Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima are two recent films directed by Clint Eastwood and examine some details of the encounter from both the American and Japanese perspectives - both films were nominated for Golden Globe and Academy Awards.

Thank you to everyone who voiced their opinion and thank you for playing ET here at the Chickenbucket.

The question and answer choices for the poll did cause some early confusion which did lead to some people voting YES when they should have been voting NO.

No was the option to kill the server off due to limited/negligible player connections and based on comments alone this should put the No result clearly 5 to 8 points ahead of Yes.

So this means that the server will be closed down soon.

But we are looking at all new gaming options and if enough people get behind a game they want to play a new server will rise from the ashes.

The forum will remain for everyone to keep in touch
