And the battery rates two mentions in the USMC official history, which are pretty much the same as found in the US Army official history:

Pearl Harbor to Guadalcanal: History of U.S. Marine Corps Operations in World War II, vol. 1. LtCol Frank O. Hough, USMCR. Maj Verle E. Ludwig, USMC, and Henry I. Shaw, Jr. 1958. 439 pp.

page 342 (footnote) and page 357

(the USMC battery was A/5th Defense Battalion)
