The first Japanese prisoners (2) were taken by  the USS Trout (SS-202) at the battle of Midway on 9 June 1942.  The prisoners came from the Japanese cruiser  MIKUMA  Trout was commanded by LCDR F.W. Fenno.

Dave wins...therefore he is the winner of a no-expenses paid trip to Muskogee to put down some deck   buck2

I expected this one to be a little harder...but Dave nailed it.

Good job!
