Roster of the Mataasnalupa Guerrilla Unit

The Mataasnalupa Guerrilla Unit was supposedly a small guerrilla outfit operating in the then-municipality of Lipa during the Japanese Occupation of Batangas up to the liberation of the province. It was commanded by one Julian Morada. This unit failed to obtain official recognition as an element of the Philippine Army in the service of the Armed Forces of the United States. In this document1 is contained the roster of this guerrilla unit, preceded by the cover letter.

S i r s :

Knowing that the Philippines has been growing vigorously for about forty years under the United States culture and believing that she will continue to grow more vigorously under the same culture and that she will become one of the most fortunate countries if the United States wins another world war which is likely to come in the near future, we, the undersigned, founders of [the] Mataasnalupa Guerrilla Unit, have the honor to submit herewith its history [posted as a separate page in this web site] and roster for its recognition.

Very respectfully,

[Sgd.] JULIAN MORADA

[Sgd.] MAURICIO MORADA

[Sgd.] TOMAS ONTOY

[Sgd.] CRISTANTO BATHAN
