The Borneo Maru was used by the Japanese Navy during the Pacific War.
Damaged, this vessel was beached and abandoned in Gertrude Cove off Kiska Island.
On November 7, 1942 the shipwreck was bombed by American aircraft. Two days later, two B-26s and four P-38s bomb the Borneo Maru but score no hits. On November 10, three B-26 bomb the ship unsuccessfully. Until the 1970s, this shipwreck remained in situ above the waterline.
