Partial Roster, Officers, Hunters ROTC Guerrillas in Batangas

The Hunters/ROTC were a guerrilla group formed in 1942. Initially operating in Rizal Province, the group would also have a sizable presence in Batangas and would be instrumental in providing intelligence to the United States forces leading to the assault landing at Nasugbu on 31 January 1945.

More information about the group is available in this article → “Operations of the Hunters/ROTC Guerillas in Batangas Prior to the 1945 Nasugbu Landing in WWII.”

In the document1 below are contained excerpts from a partial list of officers belonging to the guerrilla outfit in 1944. For the purposes of this web site, only those of the 49th Regiment, which operated in Batangas, are included.
