The Unholy Three of the 618th Engineers in WWII: Philippines
WWII PI Balawan arch
Independence Arch. The location is identified as "Balawan." There are two cities of this name on Mindanao, but the data strongly suggests they were not visited. The candidates for this location are Balaoan, about 15 miles from the 618th base at San Fernando, and Balayan, near Taal. The consideration that the woman sitting under the arch bears a general resemblance to the woman in the previous San Fernando photos tentatively points to Balaoan.
