‘Field’ testing in Rothesay Bay, Scotland, United Kingdom, 3 Mar 1944..
USS Barb (SS-220), a Gato-class submarine, was the first ship of the United States Navy to be named for the barbus. She compiled one of the most outstanding US-submarine records of World War II. During her seven war patrols, Barb is officially credited with sinking 17 enemy vessels totaling 96,628 tons, including the Japanese aircraft carrier Un'yō. In recognition of one outstanding patrol, Barb received the Presidential Unit Citation. On her twelfth and final patrol of the war, she landed a party of carefully selected crew members who blew up a railroad train, the only ground combat operation in the Japanese home islands.
The keel of USS Barb was laid down on 7 June 1941 by the Electric Boat Company of Groton, Connecticut. She was launched on 2 April 1942, and commissioned on 8 July 1942, Lieutenant Commander John R. Waterman in command.
