[Marc Adamo, 10/18/2003]

There is a Submarine Memorial in Borg Park, near the USS Ling submarine, according to an old postcard in our collection. The torpedo is enshrined in memory of the 3,505 men lost aboard submarines during WW2, men lost aboard all submarines, and the USS Gudgeon, lost on her 12th war patrol. Three separate plaques, meaning that the Gudgeon crew is memorialized three times.
