Looks like inter island steamers - probably in Tulagi Harbor - damaged from enemy action.
Casualties being brought down from Bloody Ridge. I Battery artillery emplacement was located beside this trail.
This appears to have been taken soon after the previous photo. Looks like the same burning ship in Iron Bottom Sound a few moments later. Note low hanging puffs of smoke
Temporary grave with marker which reads, "Here lies a Devil Dog", widely seen in publications .
Army troops on Cape Esperance. Plenty of mud! Which was typical of the rainy season.
"Radio station destroyed by naval gun fire. No idea about the statue." I wonder if it may have been a missionary hut. Does anyone recognise this location?
Sgt. Genung's Ice House. Sign says : "Tojo Ice Co. -- Under New Management!"
This looks like a Marine bivuaoc along the spine of ridges which extend from Henderson Field southward into the jungles with Iron Bottom Sound in the far distance. Most of the heavy fighting which took place on Guadalcanal in the early days (including the Battle of Bloody Ridge) took place along these strategically important ridges
Japanese ship beached at Doma Cove, Cape Esperance . Many such transports were strewn along the beaches where the Japanese Navy sought to bring troops and supplies in. After being hit from the sky, they were intentionally run aground in an effort to salvage what they could.
Cover of the USMC "Battle for Guadalcanal - 1949" - Though the Marines had few luxuries on the 'Canal, they did at least have jungle streams to cool off in, to bathe and wash their clothes.
Patrol crossing Matanikau River
Looks like "Two Log Bridge" on the upper Matanikau River. From head gear, appears to be army troops
Appears to be a hanger on fire -- probably after an air raid. Bloody ridge in the
