"The following day we met the next "star" in our cast of characters at the Nichols Field Prison Camp. He was to be named "the Wolf". He was identified by the interpreter as the "Field Superintendent" of this work detail. His jurisdiction began when the POW's departed from the school each day. We were soon to learn this man was dangerous! ...
...To the Wolf, the Angel, Cherry Blossom and the majority of our guards, we American POW's were the lowest form of life. It also became obvious these 'people' labored under a strange inferiority complex. They were small, we were large, and more importantly, we were helpless!
From "Amid Th' Encircling Gloom - Corregidor and Survival" - Al McGrew with Paul Whitman
Hey EXO/dmether....It would be comforting, to me, to know that most, if not all of these guards had their collective necks stretched after the War Crimes trials. Do you have any information of this having happened?
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
