    The Narwhal, a picture that may only be cool to me. This is the boat that inserted my father into the Japanese-occupied Philippines on a mission to observe, report, relay radio traffic, and evade capture for as long as possible.

    Your dad's exploits may have been the basis for part of a novel I read by W.E.B. Griffin called "The Fighting Agents. The submarine used in the story for the insertion was the Drum and not the Narwhal but I don't believe the Drum carried out any missions like your dad's.
    Perhaps it was "poetic license" on the part of the author (although he uses a lot of real people like "Wild Bill" Donovan in the story), and maybe it was based on others.
    At any rate, it's a good book and if you haven't already read it, I'd recommend it.
