I-58 was alongside EURYALE in Sasebo. Several of our people went over to I-58 and escorted him to EURYALE. He was aboard only a short while before being taken to testify at Capt. McVeigh's trial- a travesty of justice intended to protect others, higher up who would have been embarrassed by full disclosure. Interesting sidelight of entire affair is that the Communications Officer at Guam, who didn't tell McVeigh's ship about the Jap sub in their way, was the officer who commanded USS Squalus when it sank and lost many of its crew, just off Portsmouth before the war. Blameless in both cases it was decided- but a very unlucky man.
