|74k||Bernard Ouellet, EN, on Sabalo (SS-302) at the time, relates that this plaque is a one of a kind which was created by him using a patch he had custom made in Yokosuka during the Korean War Cruise (1953). When visiting the Sub Museum in Pearl Harbor some time ago, he noticed that there was no plaque with the ship's emblem in their collection. Upon return to his home, he mounted the patch and sent it to the museum.|| Text info courtesy of Jeff Owens.

Her periscope and radar mast are extended; the two-shaded mottle finish on the periscope fairing was prescribed in 1953 for periscopes and snorkels.||USN photo from the Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships, courtesy of Joe Radigan MACM USN Ret.|

|508k||The separate mast was installed for ECM purposes. The antenna itself was the round part at the top of the mast and does show some similarity to the mystery fixed mast top. However, the patrol reports from 1956 & 57 mention only the BLR-1 ECM gear which used two antennas. At that time one was mounted on the top of the snorkel mast and one was fixed on top of the sail per mention in the patrol reports of '56 & '57.||Photo courtesy of Jeff Owens, Larry Douglas, Howard Venezia, & Vic Peters for input.|
