Hi all!

Is there any map showing where Japanese DDs Naganami, Hamanami, Wakatsuki, Shimakaze were sunk by US airplanes from TF.38 in Ormoc bay that day?

Thank you very much
Jordi

Not a map, but best I can do:

http://www.combinedfleet.com/taops2.htm

http://www.combinedfleet.com/shimak_t.htm

All the DDs are listed as sunk at 10-50 N, 124-35 E. This is roughly just north of Pilar Pt., the NE tip of Ponson Island. From the description at combinedfleet.com, the DDs were headed west between Ponson Island and Leyte when sunk.
