 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Albacore left Pearl Harbor on 24 October 1944 topped off her fuel tanks at Midway Island on 28 October, and was never heard from again. According to Japanese records captured after the war, a submarine (presumed to be Albacore) struck a naval mine very close to the shore off northeastern Hokkaid on 7 November 1944. A Japanese patrol boat witnessed the explosion of a submerged submarine and saw a great deal of heavy oil, cork, bedding, and food supplies rise to the surface. On 13 December 1945, Albacore was presumed lost. Her name was stricken from the Naval Vessel Register on 30 March 1945.
