After striking Japanese home islands since July 10, 1945, and battering Tokyo Plains on the 17th and 18th of July, we were low on ammunition, fuel oil, gas and supplies. While underway and zigzagging at sea it took three days for the Third Fleet to receive over 6,000 tons of ammunition, about 400,000 barrels of fuel, 1,700 tons of provisions, 100 replacement aircraft and over 400 replacement officers and men. This was probably the largest transfer operation ever completed on the high seas.
