The Loss of the Seawolf​

The Seawolf left Brisbane, Australia on her last patrol on Sept. 29, 1944. She was carrying 17 Army personnel and supplies for an operation on Samar in the Philippines.​

On October 3, she was approaching Morotai and was in an area designated as safe passage for US submarines – they could pass through here with no worry of being attacked.
