Tol Island is located at the western center of Truk Lagoon in Chuuk State (Truk) in the Federated States of Micronesia. To the west are Polle Island and Pata Island. To the north is Ulalu Island. To the east is Udot Island.
During the Pacific War, roughly 6,200 Japanese were stationed on Tol Island, most civilians
working for the 4th Naval Construction unit. A thousand men of the
41st and 43 Naval Guard Units were here too. Kaiten torpedoes, a torpedo
boat station, observation tower, two search lights and several gun
and mortar emplacements defended the island.
