Letter from Capt. Octavio Nicolas to the Ex-Off, 49th Regt, Hunters-ROTC on Unit Membership
The Alcazar Battalion was a guerrilla unit purportedly founded by one Emilio Alcazar in the town of Talisay, Batangas in March of 1942. It was supposedly initially affiliated with Marcos Agustin’s guerrilla outfit but, because of difficulties in communicating with the mother unit, it later became attached instead to the Hunters-ROTC. Communication with this other large organization, however, was also poor so that essentially, the Alcazar Battalion operated independently. In this page is a transcription1 of the a communication sent by one Capt. Octavio Nicolas of the Alcazar Regiment to the Executive Officer of the 49th Regiment of the Hunters-ROTC with explanations regarding unit membership.
