Action in Kula Gulf, 6 March 1943
USS Denver (CL-58) SG radarscope image, showing the situation at time 0138, shortly before the U.S. force ceased its bombardment of Vila.
Denver is the bright spot in the scope center, with other the U.S. ships steaming north, ahead of her. The large white patch at left is Kolombangara, with Vila at its southern end. Very faint patches offshore, to the west of the U.S. ships, are the wreckage of Japanese destroyers Murasame and Minegumo, sunk earlier in the action. At the lower left is Arundel Island. New Georgia is in the lower right.
