RABAUL W/T STATION. (Additional information)
Signals were made about 10 August apparently from Herbertshohe to LEX reporting the arrival of the Australian Squadron and again from Herbertshohe to an unknown station reporting the Australian squadron being in the neighbourhood of Rabaul.
It is that LEX may be a station established on Bougainville Island or may be a stationary craft at sea that has been used as a link between Herbertshohe and Nauru.
[Hand written note] (Mr. Whittle) if wireless at Bougainville it would in all probability be at heights above Kieta harbor.
