Action in Kula Gulf, 6 March 1943
USS Denver (CL-58) SG radarscope image, showing the situation at time 0145, as the U.S. force retired from Kula Gulf after shelling Vila and sinking the Japanese destroyers Murasame and Minegumo.
Denver is the bright spot in the scope center, with other the U.S. ships steaming to NNE ahead of her. Kolombangara Island is the large white patch on the left left, with Vila at its southern end. New Georgia is on the right. The spot above the main U.S. column is probably USS Waller (DD-466), steaming to the north.
