Radio Messages from Station C.U.P.

The Anderson’s Guerrillas was a guerrilla movement organized by Major Bernard Anderson, an American officer who was in direct contact with the Southwest Pacific Area Command under General Douglas MacArthur and, thus, able to send direct intelligence reports by radio communications. This guerrilla organization was not specifically organized in Batangas, it had units formed and operating in the province, including one it sent to operate a radio station in the barrio of Pagolingin in Lipa and in the town of Mataasnakahoy, manned by BatangueƱos, which gathered and sent intelligence to the Allies. In this document1 is a collection of radio messages sent by Lt. Col. Bernard Anderson, overall commander of the Anderson’s Guerrillas, to the Guerrilla Affairs Section of the United States Armed Forces Western Pacific.
