USS Bluegill Operational Timeline

29 May 1945 USS Bluegill landed US and Australian personnel on Pratas of the Pratas Islands (Chinese: Dongsha Islands) in the South China Sea and destroyed the Japanese radio tower, weather station, fuel, ammunition dump, and several buildings. The operation was unopposed as the Japanese had already abandoned the island.
