Accidental American bombing

Figure 1
A couple of years after the tragic bombing of Laulasi Village, the Americans would make another fatal mistake on Malaita. An American practise bombing of targets at Uru Harbour on Malaita’s East coast in mid-May 1944 went tragically wrong when a local Malaitan man was killed. The practice range was then shifted to Sail Rock (see Site MALA34). [Excerpt from 1: 50,000 Map Series X715, Sheet 0816113, 2007].
