I understand that the USS Honolulu made one or more trips to Australia during WWII. I'd like to know the dates of those visits, please.

To Bill (above):
According to Honoluluís DANFS entry (repeated at Wiki), she was engaged in convoy duty between Australia, Samoa, and the United States from Feb to May 1942 but the precise dates are elusive. There does not seem to be any other times she sailed to Australia so the best source for the precise dates would be her Deck Logs for these months, available from the National Archives for a copying fee.

Famous WW2 Quote
"You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."
