Official Roster of the Luansing Unit as Recognized by the US Army

The Luansing Unit Fil-American Batangas Guerrillas were commanded by one Galicano Luansing and known loosely as the “Luansing’s Unit.” This guerrilla outfit was at one time or the other during the Japanese occupation affiliated with the Fil-American Irregular Troops and also the President Quezon’s Own Guerrillas. By the time the Allied forces return to the Philippines, it was operating independently. This unit assisted the United States Army in campaigns against the Japanese forces from Balayan, Batangas Town, Lipa, Rosario and San Juan. In this document1 is contained three pages of the roster of officers and enlisted men of the Luansing Unit Batangas Guerrillas who were officially given recognition as an element of the Philippine Army in the service of the United States Armed Forces during the liberation of the Philippines Islands.

The roster is posted here as individual image documents, paginated for the benefit of researchers.

The Luansing Unit was, of course, much larger than what is reflected in the PDF documents below. Unfortunately, however, the rest of this guerrilla unit failed to gain recognition from the United States Army for reasons that can be discerned by examining the other pages contained in the Galicano Luansing section.
