Australian OOB for Kokoda patroll action

Patrolling Action 28th July 1942

The Commander of 39th Battalion Lt Colonel (Dougy) Owen has ordered his troops to reform in Kokoda and prepare for the Japanese to attack, which is expected to come later today or tomorrow.

To accretion the strength and the intentions of the Japanese (Dougy) Owen has ordered a patrol by No 1 Section, 10th platoon, B Company 39th Battalion, comprising 7 men including a Lewis gun to patrol to the east of Kokoda on the road between Kokoda Village and Oivi.

At 10.00 am as the patrol moves forward they see up ahead what appears to be troops moving down the track towards Kokoda but as it is raining they are unable to ascertain if these are Japanese troops or further Australian troops, either Militia of PNB troops coming back to the main body after the previous three days actions.

The patrol moves forward with caution.
