Suicide Charley



On 24 October 1942, the 1st Marine Division was occupying a defensive position around Henderson Field on Guadalcanal. After a very violent night, a flag appeared over the “C” Company position. It consisted of white Japanese parachute material with a skull and crossbones crudely painted on it and inscribed with the word 1st Battalion, 7th Marines “Suicide Charley”
