A brief history:

The US Navy's fast and robust Torpedo Boats achieved great successes, especially in the Pacific theatre of war.

On 5th November 1943, PT 167 was under way with a convoy from Cape Torokina towards the Treasury Islands.

A sudden attack by 12 Japanese Torpedo bombers was followed by vehement defensive action.

After a low flying bomber had hit the radio mast on PT 167, the boat received another heavy hit but no explosion followed.

During a succesful attack by another bomber squadron the gunners on PT 167 shot down an enemy aircraft.

During an inspection of the boat after the battle a huge hole was discovered in the bow. An enemy torpedo had penetrated the bow above the waterline without exploding
