The Timor Convoy was a convoy carrying troops to reinforce forces already defending Timor. Escorting USAT Meigs, SS Mauna Loa, SS Portmar, and Tulagi, USS Houston with the destroyer USS Peary and sloops HMAS Warrego and HMAS Swan departed Darwin before two in the morning of 15 February for Koepang, Dutch Timor. However, the convoy was spotted by a Japanese patrol flying boat, and later, faced an attack from Japanese bombers, who try to prevent the convoy from reaching Koepang.
In this video, you will find an animated map of the details of operation by the Japanese empire and The Allied defence. The Timor Convoy is one of the forgotten battles in the Pacific War.
