Original Caption: Baby Vicente Barrion, 1 year old, who is held by his mother, has a scar on his head, which was caused by a Jap bayonet when his mother fled from the Jap massacre with the baby in her arms. The baby was 4½ months old when the tragedy happened. Barrio Maabud, Taal, Batangas Province, Luzon, P.I. (for Philippine Islands)

The reader will please noted that Barrio Maabud is presently part of the Municipality of San Nicolas, which separated from Taal in 1955 to become a town of its own.
