  • Death Patrol
    • Jackie is still absent.
    • This episode is shorter than usual, and is a cliff-hanger, breaking off right where the D.P.'s new status is announced.
  • PT Boat
    • Paul Harvey once again gets wounded and half drowned, and rescued by Perry Tobias.
    • Perry Tobias gets head-konked unconscious with a rock from a sling.
    • Page 1 panel 3: The "shoulderboards" on Tobias's dress uniform displays the rank of "Ensign," while those on Harvey's uniform show "Lieutenant." In earlier stories both of them were Lieutenants. Next issue, with no explanation, they will both be Ensigns.
  • Secret War News
    • "This is an actual story based upon inside facts gathered from U.S.N. Information Bureaus."
