Some questions about the PR's assigned to the Asiatic Fleet at the start of the war... When the Yangtse Patrol was dissolved on December 6th did USS Oahu & USS Luzon immediately "chop" to the 16th Naval District, or did they remain Asiatic Fleet units until they joined the Inshore Patrol on the 8th? (2) Was the South China Patrol dissolved at the same time as the Yangtse Patrol, or did it remain active until USS Mindanao arrived on the 10th? Thanks!
Thanks! I have a copy of Gordon's book & I didn't see anything there. It's been years since I read Tolley & I wasn't looking for the status of the gunboats when I did. Looks like I'll need to go back and see what I can find...
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
