On March 5 1942, COMINCH sent a priority message to COMSIXTEEN (052220Z) the following:
During the night of February 4, 1942, the submarine USS SEADRAGON (SS-194) made its way into Manila Bay and to the dock at Corregidor, where the first team consisting of four officers, LCDRs S.A Carlson, G.M. Richardson, LT R.J. Fabian (1) and ENS R.W. Lewis and 13 men embarked.
The move of Station “C” to Corregidor represented the conclusion of several years of plans, negotiations, and construction. The original idea of moving the Radio Intelligence Station, as it was then called, was apparently first conceived by CINCAF, Admiral Upham, and the Asiatic Communication Intelligence (COMINT) Officer, LT Wenger, in 1933.
By the mid-1920s, several enterprising radiomen on Asiatic duty assignments on the USS ISABEL (PY-10), USS PITTSBURGH (CA-4), and the men in the 4th Marine Headquarters at Shanghai, China, had self-trained themselves to intercept radio traffic (kata kana) that was transmitted on Japanese Navy radio circuits.
