October 14 This Day During World War ll

October 14, 1943 – USS Ray’s conning tower suffered flooding while she dove to escape an approaching Japanese patrol aircraft in the South China Sea; she would sail to Mios Woendi near Biak, Dutch East Indies for repairs. On 14 October, while making a crash dive to escape a Japanese patrol plane, Ray’s conning tower was flooded by an improperly secured hatch, but she was brought under control before reaching 85 feet (26 m). However, the damage forced the submarine to put into Mios Woendi for repairs during the last week of October.
