Here's an image that didn't make it into the MANILA 1945 - AFTERMATH - book, due to some severe color imbalances that I couldn't overcome. Benjamin Limos has cleared them up, and done a nice job of it too, so now we present it to you.
It's another from the FRED HILL COLLECTION but this time I can't place the street. Fred can't recall either. Can anyone place it? What about that car? What's that?
Hey Registrar....I would even humble myself and settle for a "low end" Buick. What puzzles me is how a vehicle, in what appears to be great shape, survived the War. One would think that some Japanese Staff Officer would have "liberated" this set of wheels in early 1942. Maybe, just maybe, this vehicle was stowed away in a barn/shed/etc as was that illustrious Tiger tank of which we spoke previously.
Its nice to see WWII Baguio Pictures. I need to read more about WWII Baguio, when WWII history in the Philippines is concerned its mainly the Leyte landing,Bataan,Coregidor and Manila that is being emphasized in schools.
I wonder what is the story in that Photo looks like the Buildings roof was burned out and in the modern pictures looks like damage from the 1990 Baguio quake.

BLussier: I am the niece of Pvt. Robert D. Turner 13030357 listed as MIA on Corregidor. Still working with DPAA on Robert’s case. In the first entry on thread you mention a report and give info from Col. (Chaplain) Boerman that references cremating bodies in tunnel

BLussier: Is it possible to get a copy of that report? DPAA analyst never heard this before. I read the same info in a book. It was reported by a doc in the tunnel. Unfortunately I did not write the book title/ author info so can not use that info as evidence this
