Last Known Activity

Following duty at New London and hydrogen tests at Washington, DC, USS S-26 (SS-131) sailed from New London on 10 December 1941, and arrived at Coco Solo, Panama on 19 December. Accidentally rammed by the submarine chaser Sturdy at night in the Gulf of Panama, S-26 sank on 24 January 1942 with the loss of 46 men. Three men (the captain, executive officer, and a lookout) survived. Though divers were sent down to the wreck over the following days, her hull was not salvaged. GM2 Ramsey was among the missing and was later declared dead.
