Re my #604 [a].
They left the harbor early on the 16th loaded with food supplies. On the stern three sea planes (single wing) were observed. Designation is as stated in my previous message. It is also reported that they (arrived here ?) by way of Australia but whether this is true or not I don't know.
ARMY 22693 Trans. 9/25/41 (6)
[a] S.I.S. #22430. I have secret information that the St. Louis and three other ships are leaving for Singapore and that they apparently have ammunition on board.
