Accordingly, it was decided to test the feasibility of making landings by submarine, supply small communication and coast watcher units in the Philippines. The first attempt was made on 14 January 1943, when the Gudgeon landed 6 men and 2000 pounds of equipment and supplies on the island of Negros.

This was followed by theTambor landing a small party with about 2 tons of supplies at Labangan, Mindanao on 5 March 1943. Thereafter, at about 5 week intervals, small parties of personnel with about 2 tons of stores each were landed at various points in the central and southern Philippines by special submarine missions carried out during their regular war patrols.
