Last Known Activity

The USS Bonefish (SS-223) was on a war patrol in the Sea of Japan with two other submarines. Her last communication was during a rendezvous on June 18, 1945. Captured Japanese records indicate that a Japanese vessel was sunk on June 19th and that during an intense counterattack a submarine was sunk with all hands. It is presumed that this was the USS Bonefish. Seaman 1st Class Hess was officially declared dead 15 July 1946.
