Hello to all. Today I want to share this M1926 khaki pre war uniform. It belonged to Major James Lindsay, assigned to the 23rd F.A. (Philippine Scout) in 1940. He will be captured by the Japanese after Bataan and remained in captivity.
During his captivity, Bob worked out complete plans for the reorganization of the Philippine Scouts and the Philippine Army. The plans were left in the care of a fellow prisoner who, fortunately, survived, and forwarded them to the proper authority.
The tragic details of the sailing of the Japanese prison ship, Oryku Maru, from Manila on December 13, 1944, have been recorded too many times to bear painful repetition. Bob survived two sinkings, but died enroute from Formosa to Japan as a result of extreme exposure and dehydration.
