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

Architect LBD: Hi guys, i just want to say your chat here is a big help in my study about senior officers family quarters in Corregidor. cheers! Dec 6, 2019 1:36:25 GMT 8
Architect LBD: Is there anyone here had lived in corregidor?... im wondering about what are the spaces/rooms of senior family quarters. thank you Dec 6, 2019 1:37:43 GMT 8
Bob: I'm planning a return to Corregidor in 2020 and plan to replicate your James Ravine adventure. Dec 7, 2019 5:29:29 GMT 8
Bob: I wonder if there any Japanese skeletons or artifacts to be found on Corregidor. Dec 7, 2019 5:43:49 GMT 8
Bob: Has anyone done any metal detecting on Corregidor? I bet it's loaded with it. Dec 9, 2019 10:24:06 GMT 8
Bob: Ghost hunters should visit Corregidor because if ghosts are real then they're on the Rock. Dec 9, 2019 10:24:57 GMT 8
Carmen: Grande Island was used for recreation in the early 80s. My best friend's dad, Mr. Ponton, was in charge of Grande Island operations. The hotel was the old hospital from WWII. 1st floor remodeled, 2nd floor partial remodel, 3rd floor original and HAUNTED. Dec 15, 2019 14:18:48 GMT 8
cbuehler: With regard to metal detecting, it is, or was, strictly not allowed. I have not been on the Rock for 10 years now, but one used to find ordnance quite easily, just lying around. As with all the battlefields in PI, Japanese relics are far fewer than US. Dec 16, 2019 5:23:03 GMT 8
beirutvet: SGantner, Hello. I have found the web site 'American Battle Monuments Commission' very helpful in the past. I would suggest starting there. Dec 27, 2019 0:26:56 GMT 8
Raquella1975: Restituto J. Besid was my grandfather. Finding the original post by Karl Welteke is incredible! Jan 30, 2020 11:55:05 GMT 8
robert2010: Thank you for comments. I must admit that every time I've visited The Rock I come away with an artifact or two. My first time in 2007 I found a 30-06 bullet, 2 buttons, and shrapnel. Are there still sealed caves on The Rock that might contain japanese? Feb 11, 2020 14:05:55 GMT 8
Registrar: Robert2010 - The tunnel at Monkey Point would contain bodies. So the answer is YES. Feb 23, 2020 21:41:48 GMT 8
robert2010: The radio intercept tunnel? Mar 3, 2020 5:56:33 GMT 8
EXO: yes. The entire tunnel roof has collapsed, and the void below filled by dirt. There is no telling what is below, it is too unstable to dig. Whatever is below must remain there. As for sealed caves, it is almost impossible to locate the truly sealed caves. Mar 5, 2020 11:58:09 GMT 8
