Title: Action in Kula Gulf, 6 March 1943
Description: USS Denver (CL-58) SG radarscope image, showing the situation at time 0105 ¾, as the U.S. force was firing on Japanese destroyers Minegumo and Murasame. Denver is the bright spot in the center of the scope, with other U.S. ships steaming SSW ahead of her. The large white patch at left is Kolombangara, with the two Japanese ships showing as spots just offshore. Murasame, dead in the water, is the smaller spot. Minegumo's movement makes her spot appear larger. The large white patch at right is New Georgia. Both Japanese destroyers were sunk in this engagement. Copied from a photograph in Denver's 9 March 1943 Action Report, 1985 U.S. Naval History and Heritage Command Photograph.
