Last Known Activity

USS Spectacle (AM-305) took patrol station near Ie Shima on 22 May 1945 and, early that morning, splashed a "Betty". At 0805, a diving kamikaze crashed into the minesweeper, striking the ship under her port 40-millimeter gun tub, causing extensive damage and blowing many of her crew overboard. Her rudder jammed. She dropped anchor to avoid running over her men in the water. At 0815, USS LSM-135 began picking up survivors; but, 15 minutes later, the medium landing ship was also hit by a kamikaze and burst into flames. Spectacle's losses were: 11 killed outright, four who died of wounds, six wounded, and 14 missing in action.

F2c Albright was killed in action. He was originally buried in Ie Shima. In 1949, his remains were returned to the
US for burial by his family.
