At random: The first Japanese prisoner of war captured by the Americans was Kazuo Sakamaki, an ensign in the Imperial Japanese Navy. He was captured on the morning of December 7, 1941. Sakamaki had set an explosive charge to destroy his disabled submarine, which had been trapped on Waimanalo Beach. When the explosives failed to go off, he swam to the bottom of the submarine to investigate the cause of the failure and became unconscious due to a lack of oxygen. Sakamaki was found by a Hawaiian soldier, David Akui, and was taken into military custody. When he awoke, he found himself in a hospital under American armed guard. After the war he returned to Japan and found work with the Toyota Motor Corporation before retiring in 1987. Sakamaki died on November 29, 1999, aged 81.

Subject: Voge speed spread diagram

I am looking for a picture and/or info about the Voge speed spread diagram, used on WW2 subs to aid in computing firing solutions. It was created by LCDR Voge while he was in command of USS SAILFISH in early 1942. The diagram was in graph format and was based upon 200% target length coverage with a divergent spread. Don't know more about it but would be interested in any info you might have.
