Hey Demether....Hard to believe that these smiling, docile looking guys would cut your throat or stick a bayonet into you and never blink an eye, isn't it. Wonder what that morsel is that the one guy in the lower right corner is consuming???? A thick slice of bread???? I assume that this man is a prisoner, but maybe he is an Amer/Fil guard. Welcome to the forum.
Hey dmether...I think you are exactly right. Same guys, with the pic taken from a different angle with "Slim" munching on that same piece of bread. I wonder if these "able bodied" Japanese soldiers were among those who were thrown into Nipponese stockades in Manila after being freed upon the surrender of Bataan. It was said that the Japanese troops who occupied the Mariveles/Cabcaben area looked unkindly upon their fellow countrymen found to be prisoners of the American/Filipino forces that weren't seriously wounded. These unfortunates were said to have been shipped to Manila and harshly treated. Do you put any credence into this story???
I've wondered what might have happened to them once they were liberated. I think the Japanese made a distinction between those who surrendered and those who were captured. Either way, I doubt they were well treated.
I bet the front line American troops who survived the war weren't too happy to see a picture of the captured enemy eating better than what they had.

okla: Hey Fots...Thanks a bunch. My Doc informed me way back when I celebrated numero 75 that everything from that point onward should be considered gravy" or "bonus" time. Eight years later I fear I have about used up the "bonus". The Grim Reaper may be lurking

john johnson from Montana: Dear Karl. I am unable to post to forum but I will gladly send you detailed pictures of the flag pole at Ft William Henry Harrison Montana showing it is identical to the flag pole on Corregidor's. FT Harrison was established in late 1890's

john johnson from Montana: s sFT Harrison stopped being an active duty Army post in 1910's and became a medical facility. So Ft Harrison predates 1923 style flag pole I feel we are on the right path to figuring out the history of these flag poles. A direct email you can reach me at

john johnson from Montana: Karl, firstname.lastname@example.org is an email you can use to reach me. I too studied pictures of the 1898 Spanish warships and did not find a match for our f*g poles. Thank you for sharing your research. Look forward to hearing from you, jjj
