PHILIPPINE NAVY HISTORY: FIRST PHILIPPINE NAVY ANTI-SUBMARINE WARFARE (ASW) OPERATIONS...

It was first days of November 1952, it was the height of the HUK Campaign wherein relentless reports were provided to authorities on the sightings of unknown submarines in the Polilio Island Area in Lamon Bay Quezon Province...

On 12 November, the ships of the 1st PATROL CRAFT ESCORT (PCE) Division under LTSG Dioscoro Papa PN aboard RPS PANGASINAN (PS-31) comprising RPS SAMAR (PS33) commanded by LTSG Domingo Villamater PN and RPS CEBU (PS28) under LTSG Alfredo Peralta PN positioned themselves at their designated patrol areas in Casiguran Bay (PS31), in San Miguel Bay (PS28) and in Lamon Bay (PS33)... On 13 November 1952 PS33 detected on its radar two converging vessels... In order to intercept, RPS SAMAR positioned herself in the middle but lost contact with the other craft- (a 100 foot Submarine) at the range of 2,000 yards, in a few minutes they were able to regain sonar contact and released depth charges though no explosions were heard, sonar contact was again made the following day 0530H wherein the intruder conducted evasive maneuvers and headed for deeper waters, depth charges were again released with the last one around 0610H which resulted to explosions...

SAMAR's ASW-TRR was looked into by the US Navy at Subic Bay and JUSMAG and was determined that the depth charge was dropped at beam aspect and could have damage the submarine... This episode in Philippine Naval History marked the first ASW operation conducted by the Philippine Navy with the end result for about 6 years no Submarine sightings were reported... Then Defense Secretary Ramon Magsaysay lauded the skippers of the three warships in preventing the resupply of ammunition to the HUK rebels... This milestone marked the essence of CONTROL OF THE SEA which is a valuable factor in any conflict, as most submarine surfacing or sighting reports of those days were in the Celebes Sea, Sulu Sea, Sibutu, Palawan, Lamon Bay, Dirige Bay and in the Ilocos area...
The ships utilized in the operation were transferred from the USN to PN in May 1948: RPS SAMAR was scrapped in 1960, while BRP Pangasinan and BRP Cebu are still in active service... All ships belong to the Miguel Malvar Corvette Class whose namesake is named after the famous Batangueno General of the Philippine Revolution...
