Last Known Activity

On January 10th, 1943, the USS Argonaut (SS-168) was attacking a Japanese convoy when she was counterattacked by the convoy escorts. An allied plane witnessed her attack. The submarine was apparently damaged by a depth charge. When she came to the surface, she was subsequently sunk by gun fire from the Japanese destroyers escorting the convoy, with a loss of all crew members. Lieutenant Allen was officially declared dead on January 11, 1944.
