Half of of an island off Bougainville is missing. I was hoping it might the one called Shortland Island but that is situated further south and seems to be quite complete ;=)

It may be Fauro, accg to http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/australia/solomon_islands_pol89.jpg
PCL's map calls the islands in this area the "Shortland Islands", so it's not clear whether there is also *a* "Shortland Island".
No, Fauro is the curvy one that it is right next to, accg to coords at http://www.pacificwrecks.com/provinces/solomons_fauro.html
