NOTES: Chuuk Lagoon (formerly Truk Lagoon) is well known amongst shipwreck diving enthusiasts, Japanese war survivors, and United States of America military historians. The 50+ shipwrecks, many retaining considerable integrity, located in a lagoon of warm, clear water have become a diver's paradise and are advertised as such through numerous websites, publications and films. They are also the final resting place for about 4 000 Japanese. To the United States of America (US) they are important historic sites associated with the US pushing back the Japanese military on their way to finalising the War in the Pacific in 1945.
