Roster of the Highlanders United Guerrillas

The Highland United Guerrillas was guerrilla outfit that operated in the Province of Batangas out of the Municipality of Mataasnakahoy in World War II. It was under the command of one Alfredo Silva. In this page is contained the roster1 submitted by this guerrilla unit in its application for official recognition by the United States Army.

The reader/researcher is advised that this guerrilla unit failed to obtain this desired recognition as an element of the Philippine Army in the service of the Armed Forces of the United States. This does not mean, however, that the guerrilla unit was bogus.

Although there were, indeed, unscrupulous outfits who hastily submitted applications in the hope of availing of veterans benefits from the United States without really having engaged in any sort of resistance against the Japanese regime, still others failed to gain recognition because of the absence of required documentation.

The roster of the Highlanders United Guerrillas is presented in individual image documents in this page, duly paginated for the benefit of researchers who may need pages for citation purposes.
