On February 2, 1942 SS-194 submarine USS Seadragon attacked a Japanese supply convoy north of Lingayen Gulf, Luzon, Philippine Islands and sank the transport Tamagawa Maru.  Just days later she evacuated 21 military personnel, 23 torpedoes, spare submarine parts, and radio equipment from Corregidor, Philippine Islands.
From July 12 – 16, she successfully sank three Japanese transports off the costs of French Indochina.
