Last Known Activity

Japanese records reported that on 11 October, 1943 the date USS Wahoo (SS-238) was due to exit through La PĂ©rouse Strait, an antisubmarine aircraft sighted a wake and an apparent oil slick from a submerged submarine. The Japanese initiated a combined air and sea attack with numerous depth charges throughout the day. Sawfish had been depth-charged by a patrol boat while transiting the strait two days before, and the enemy's antisubmarine forces were on the alert; their attacks fatally holed Wahoo, and she sank with all hands. She was declared overdue on 2 December 1943 and stricken from the Naval Vessel Register on 6 December 1943.
TM1 Johnson was a member of the crew. He was listed as missing in action and later declared dead.
