Response to Thank you for substantive information

 

In the July - August (#4) issue of COAST ARTILLERY JOURNAL (previously mentioned) there is an article titled "Narrative of 3d Battalion, --- CA, 1942 - 43, by Lieutenant Colonel Henry G. Fowler Coast Artillery Corps.

http://www.airdefenseartillery.com/online/2010/Coast%20Artillery%20Journal/Extract/CA%201944/Jul-Aug%201944.pdf

It appears to be about the 3rd Bn, 244th Coast Artillery. It specifically mentions the deployment of a Battery F to Guadalcanal.

In the same issue is another article about the use of seacoast defense guns (155mm guns) by a USMC Defense Battalion in support of ground operations in the Munda operation - with photographs.
