On the night of 26 August, Allied planes strafed and sank landing barges carrying a large force of Japanese from the Sasebo 5th Special Naval Landing Force. The survivors were stranded on Goodenough Island, and as the Allies began to tighten their grip on the beachheads at Buna and Gona the reinforced Australian 2/12th Battalion was landed on the night of 22/23 October to clear the island.


The tired and hungry Japanese put up a strong resistance throughout the day, but it was only to gain time. They were evacuated that night and the Australians were left in sole possession of the island.
