  History  
 
Lettens Jan26/04/2014On April 26th, 1944, US submarine JACK (SS-259 Lt.Cdr. T.M. Dykers) encounters Japanese Take No.1 convoy off the west coast of Luzon and sinks army transport YOSHIDA MARU NO.1 and damages army cargo ship WALES MARU.

YOSHIDA MARU NO.1 was carrying the 210 Infantry Regiment and sank at 0600 hours with 2,586 men, including crew.

USS JACK clears the area to return to Fremantle and shells and sinks trawler DAISUN MARU on April 27th, to make sure she does not use her radio-equipment.
