The members of my family have found comfort in knowing where our family member is buried and that his grave is well maintained. We have a lot of additional information on many of these men which I’ll be happy to share with other families. Please contact me at email@example.com. Please include your name and relationship in your initial contact email.
In addition to these POWs who died in the Philippine camps, one of the most extensive lists of POW’s and their disposition was compiled by Bob Hudson from records of Bilibid Prison. Bilibid was sort of a transportation hub and many POW’s passed through it on their way to other camps in the Philippines, Japan, Korea or China. Bob has graciously allowed us to post his data here.
