    Background: Just under 1500 United States Marines recently landed at Guantanamo U.S. naval base, Havana, held on lease from Cuba. They were on their way to home base at Puerto Rico following 4 weeks of sea manoeuvres on board the aircraft-carrier "Boxer".

    Dr Castro's reaction to this was to declare invasion "Imminent" and mobilize thousands of Cuban militiamen. Some 200,000 reported for duty throughout the country.

    The Marines left Guantanamo Oct 31 after their shore liberty leaving the normal security guard of about 300 on duty at the base.
