The Unholy Three of the 618th Engineers in WWII: Philippines
WWII PI Bailey bridge
A temporary Bailey bridge near Taal. We doubt the 618th had anything to do with this. No engineering activity in this area was reported in the unit history and there are no photos of engineering work or a completed bridge at Taal, so it seems unlikely they erected it or replaced it with a permanent structure. Perhaps Lt. Johnson simply came across it during a sightseeing trip to Taal, observed, and moved on.
