    Tulagi - An island of the south central Solomons in the southwestern Pacific. Located south of Florida Island and north of Guadalcanal, Tulagi was the scene of the beginning of the struggle for the Solomon Islands when Japanese forces occupied the island on 3 May 1942. It was captured by United States Marines later that year when they landed there on 7 August and wrestled control of the island from the Japanese. (Navsource)
