Response to Omaha Steve (Original post)

1. Lost in Seawolf.

Which had an incredible WWII record given her age (launched before the war, after which many improvements were made).

Her first skipper was the fearless Freddie Warder who took Seawolf to fame in seven war patrols.

She was lost in Sept, 1944 under LCDR Albert Bontier due to unknown causes while on patrol out of Brisbane, Australia. Some say Japanese destroyer; some say friendly fire. I don't know if it's been determined which.

The Silent Service's story in WWII is pretty incredible. My cousin Carl died in the Kete off of the shore of Japan, which spurned my interest in WWII submarine history.
