Last Known Activity

221 CANOPUS crewmen were evacuated to Corregidor on February 28, 1942 and served with the Marines 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Battalions on beach defenses. The final 327 crewmen were also evacuated to Corregidor and served in the 4th Marine Regiment's 4th Battalion Reserves (Provisional) which fought gallantly during the final battle for the island fortress. Nearly all CANOPUS crewmen were captured at the fall of Corregidor and spent the rest of the war in Japanese POW camps in the Philippines and the Asia mainland.



Over 200 were killed in action.
