batteryboy: The guns at Fort Wint, Grande Island were NEVER moved or dismantled them nor brought them to Bataan. The two 10-inch DC guns from Battery Warwick were brought to Fort Casey after the war. Japanese had their own heavy artillery. Apr 2, 2015 8:52:08 GMT 8
batteryboy: Would love to know where the flagpole actually came from. So far the old story is that it came from the Reina Cristina sunk at Cavite during the Battle of Manila Bay. New evidence is welcome! Apr 2, 2015 9:01:02 GMT 8 *
