Karl Welteke: Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! As of tomorrow morning, will be off to a family event, Christmas at wife’s village on the San Bernardino Strait. We will be gone for two weeks. Mabuhay. Dec 23, 2017 19:00:43 GMT 8
westernaus: Thank you Karl and the best of Christmas and new year to you and all who make this a fantastic site Dec 24, 2017 11:17:04 GMT 8
Karl Welteke: Arrived at the Sa Bernardino Straits, did not see any enemy ships going thru yet. Got comms (internet) when power is on, but am busy setting up camp. Already found San Miguel beer, salamat. Thanks westernaus. Dec 26, 2017 17:49:29 GMT 8
Karl Welteke: Hello de-la hyde, used some of your pictures, look at recent posts! Jan 2, 2018 15:00:40 GMT 8
delahyde: Thanks Karl - I have updated my webpage. I like the Hotel photo you posted Jan 3, 2018 15:39:27 GMT 8
Karl Welteke: Too bad that you did not add the URL of your last reply of the GREAT FRENCH WEBSITE and we could have looked at those pictures at full screen!!!!!!!!!!!! Jan 6, 2018 14:41:59 GMT 8
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. Jan 10, 2018 10:01:17 GMT 8
delahyde: Karl, thanks for the clarification. Good luck with your investigations. Jan 11, 2018 14:42:10 GMT 8

ignacio_illenberger@yahoo.com: Dear Karl Welteke: Under the original numbering of GLP, No.5 was Primera Luz Lodge while No. 9 was Island Lodge. After WW2, Minerva joined the merging into Island Luz Minerva No. 5. Jan 15, 2018 12:25:46 GMT 8
ignacio_illenberger@yahoo.com: Dear Karl Welteke: It took us a year to find the Corregidor map that showed the USWV Hall. The present hall is our best approximation. Jan 15, 2018 12:28:08 GMT 8
ignacio_illenberger@yahoo.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. Jan 15, 2018 12:32:01 GMT 8
Karl Welteke: Hello ignacio_illenberger@yahoo.com Are you referring to this thread:
Of course, I agree with you re the new site location.

EXO: Exo will be absent from the forum until not before 23 February. He is visiting Corregidor. Feb 1, 2018 9:25:40 GMT 8
