Roster of the Ibaan Regiment Batangas Guerriillas

The Ibaan Regiment was one of many units of the Fil-American Irregular Troops (FAIT), a large guerrilla group founded by the former US Army officer Hugh Straughn, that was operating in Batangas during the Japanese Occupation. It was commanded by one Sixto Guerra. In these document1 is contained the roster of the Ibaan Regiment. The reader will please note that the lengthy roster submitted by the regiment contained the active as well as the passive members and probably mere supporters of the guerrilla group, as indeed it was typical for these guerrilla units to submit “inflated” rosters for consideration by the United States Army.

As can be discerned from other documents in the Ibaan Regiment section of this web site, the Ibaan Regiment in its entirety was not recognized officially as an element of the Philippine Army in the service of the Armed Forces of the United States. Instead, only a small fraction of the roster contained below, those who were “attached” to United States Army units during its Batangas operations in 1945 were actually given recognition.

The roster is broken down into individual PDF documents which are embedded into this page from an external source, paginated accordingly for the convenience of researchers. Each page can be zoomed in and our and scrolled up and down using the tools provided in the embedding.
