Coincidentally Dave Holland just posted some relevant pictures etc to his Facebook page "Guadalcanal - Walking a Battlefield"


"The only defeat the Marines had during the campaign. 26-27 Sept 1942. The 2nd Battle of the Matanikau."

Good drawing of the action. The actual ship was the USS Monseen and not the Ballard.
