"God Bless Their Gallant Souls"

Panel 2:
The Alabama chapter of the U.S. Submarine Veterans of World War has erected this plaque to honor the memory of shipmates serving in the U.S. Navy submarine Herring, lost with all hands on June 1, 1944, while Herring was attacking a Japanese convoy off Matsuwa Island, Kuriles. During this attack Herring sank Hiburi Maru, 3214 tons, and Iwake Maru, 4365 tons. In turn, was sunk by two direct hits from enemy shore batteries. Herring had an outstanding record during World War II, serving in both the Atlantic and Pacific. During Herring's eight war patrols she sank 58,602 tons of enemy shipping and damaged 8400 tons. The total of 13 ships sunk included the Nazi U-163 and the Jap[anese] destroyer escort Ishighaki..
