Fleet of Ferries
undated U.S. Marine Corps photograph

A fleet of landing barges ferries U.S. Marines to Florida Island to support the invasion of Guadalcanal. The original caption states that this Marine unit was on its way to the airport near Lunga Point. This photo was probably taken in August or September 1942.
