ww2dbaseHatsuzakura, a 1580-ton Tachibana class destroyer, was built at Yokosuka, Japan. Completed in May 1945, she was briefly in service during the final months of World War II. Following the war, the disarmed Hatsuzakura was employed repatriating overseas Japanese back to their homeland. Turned over to the USSR in July 1947, she was later used by the Soviet Navy as a special service auxiliary under the name TSL-24. The ship was discarded in the mid-1960s.
