99 10/8/2019 8:13:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message That's true about HQ in reinforcements, but at the time Gili Gili was in supply via C Pac, because you captured Guadalcanal with no air. It's 13 hexes to 5017, 9 hexes to N.Georgia, 3 more to Gili Gili, so exactly 25.

I explained this in the vlog file #022

Your troops in Gili-Gili couldn`t have been placed as reinforcements:

supply and activation requirements for reinforcement placement
only in the hex they occupy.
