Message from Allies:
165 9/14/2019 10:20:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message ok no problem.

btw, just because it can be an important rule and I had to look it up in another game, the AA to Bali would prevent Allied air from ending their movement there but does not prevent them from using it as a leg in a multi leg move (because it is still friendly control until PBM. ground move is a different story as you gain control immediately I think). this is pretty explicit in 8.31. so on the 3OC they could have flown to Batavia via Bali.

just something to keep in mind, it mostly comes up in these pseudo-Plan Orange situations

163 9/14/2019 9:44:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message ok, that should take care of it.

I will not take the initiative, so it's up to you.

PoW is now required starting this turn.
