delahyde: Hello Karl: I do not know what you mean. Bing Higgins sent me his original slides which I scanned, placed some on Panoramio, then returned AUS to US. Many people use my photos - not always with acknowledgement.
Karl Welteke: Delahyde, sorry, my comment was directed to EXO re his entry about the bombing in Manila 1941.

email@example.com: Dear Karl Welteke: When we found the location, it was a stinking garbage dump. It was either that more accurate location or the nearby and more dignified looking former horse cadaver incineration facility. Fidelity to history won the day.
