The Tail of the Lizard's Tail is the sixth episode of The Irresponsible Captain Tylor. It first aired in Japan on March 1, 1993.
Frustrated by Tylor's success Mifune and Fuji give him a medal. The medal is actually a trap--it is a beacon that will draw the enemy fleet to them. Instead of appearing in front of the Soyokaze, though, the enemy appears in front of Mifune's ship. As it turns out, the medal had never left Mifune's ship--it had fallen out of a hole in Tylor's pocket.
