Wahoo was last heard from Sept. 13, 1943, as the Gato-class submarine departed the island of Midway en route to the ?dangerous, yet important,? Sea of Japan. Under strict radio silence, Morton and his crew proceeded as ordered. Radio contact was expected to be regained with Midway in late October upon Wahoo?s departure from the Sea of Japan through the Kurile Island chain. No such contact was made. Following an aerial search of the area, Wahoo was officially reported missing Nov. 9, 1943.

At the time, the loss of Wahoo was believed due to mines or a faulty torpedo. But Japanese reports later stated that one of its planes had spotted an American submarine in the La Perouse Strait on Oct. 11, 1943. These reports indicate a multi-hour combined sea and air attack involving depth charges and aerial bombs finally sunk Wahoo.

Part of the Wahoo's "scrapbook"...

Two points I find amazing,
1, she doesn't look to have been too beaten up considering her time down there.
2, Funny how marine growth won't take to certain metals. (ie, antenna installation, and end cap on deck gun)
Good find WS, great site<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
