Marine Niece: Chadhill: Thank you for the sources! They've become part the story I'm writing about James's Marine service and his death. Do you think it's at all possible for me to recover my uncle's body and bring it home? May 31, 2019 5:31:37 GMT 8
chadhill: Marine Niece: Very possible. Call USMC Service Casualty Office to register as family member at 800-847-1597. They will want a DNA sample. See FAQ at www.dpaa.mil/Contact/Contact-Us. Be sure to request his Individual Deceased Personnel File. Jun 5, 2019 7:16:36 GMT 8
Marine niece: About 5PM 5/6/42, my uncle swam from the shelter of some Caballo cliff caves to help someone swimming from Corregidor. Returning, he was resting in the water by rocks when he was bombed and killed. Are there cliff caves east of the north dock near Fuger Jun 11, 2019 22:50:33 GMT 8

cbuehler: Caballo Island is almost all cliffs etc. I have to say that a swim from Corregidor to there would be quite a feat even for an outstanding swimmer, given the distance, frequently rough water and sharks that were there. Jun 13, 2019 0:39:22 GMT 8

batteryboy: There were a number of natural caves along the steep and rocky shoreline of Caballo. Not that deep though. There is a slight slope from the shore line leading to Battery Fuger but I cant recall any natural caves when i circled the island. Jul 29, 2019 18:30:52 GMT 8
fortune40: Has anyone heard of government plan to build bridge between Bataan and Cavite passing by Corregidor? If its true going to the island in the future is easier to any tourists coming from Bataan or Cavite but the influx may change the landscape too..! Sept 17, 2019 20:40:04 GMT 8
Rmcnnlly: My Gr-Uncle Lt. Col. Cyril "Bud" Marron died on the Oryoku Maru. I recently heard there will be an attempt to recover the remains of the those who died on the ship. Does anyone know who to contact about this? Sept 18, 2019 3:26:06 GMT 8

Nigel Williams: Hugh Williams, Capt of Henry Keswick, was my grandfather. Seems after the bombing which sank the Tantalus, and Henry Keswick crew were taken prisoner on 3 January 1942. 9 April 1942 it grounded while under USA command, then Japs renamed her Gyeongju Maru. Nov 4, 2019 17:32:30 GMT 8

Nigel Williams: The CO of the Keswick when it grounded was Lt Donalson. A Norwegian name, possibly. Torvald Kibsgaard's account could have some truth to it, if we imagine Torvald had talked up his role on board (given that the CO was deceased) from greaser to Commander. Nov 7, 2019 12:11:11 GMT 8
