Golet

Ship Designation: 
SS-361
Date Lost: 
Wednesday, June 14, 1944
Lost in Antisubmarine Attack
Golet departed Midway on 28 May 1944, intending to continue patrolling in the vicinity of Honshu. Nothing further was heard of the ship or her crew of 82 men, despite repeated messages from headquarters requesting acknowledgment of receipt. Postwar analysis of Japanese antisubmarine records indicates that an attack conducted in Golet’s operational area on 14 June 1944, resulting in debris and an oil slick, was the probable cause of her loss.
