Zf016- Asiatic Fleet steaming past Corregidor; this is the description on back of the previous picture and they got it wrong (Corregidor is the left one). This picture was provided by the Army Lt. Chester K. Britt Research Team. John Duresky wrote this when sending these pictures to me: “Trying to collect original wire-photos of some of the earliest shots used in papers at the start of the war. Original photo much better than what got printed here, can actually count the smokestacks now.

Incidentally, the description of the Asiatic fleet in the attached August 1941 paper had to be a real morale booster”.

Zd958. This is one of 10 images of the Bataan West Road between point No1 and point No 2 on the map of image No. Zd953. No 1 Point is the entrance to very large Camaya Development area, and a Philippine Army outpost and the road to Lague Bay starts here. No 2 Point is the Quinauan or Quinawan River Bridge, between those two points was the last segment of the Bataan West Road that needed work and it is done except one small place where work is being finished and one section of the road has a down-slope road bank problem. Now it is a nice scenic cruising road!
