>Cmdr. Fluckey was an amazing sub captain. A couple more details on that raid: They used a 65lb scuttling charge with a jury-rigged pressure switch the boat's electrician made and set it under the tracks.


>The Barb's crew under Fluckey's command didnt lose a man or had anyone seriously wounded.


>They snuck into a Japanese harbor and torpedoed multiple transports at anchor and slipped away undetected.


>They had rocket batteries mounted to the deck and was the first sub to bombard shore installations.
