The Pandita Unit was a guerrilla organization organized in the town of Bauan, Batangas. It was supposedly affiliated with the 6th Military District under Col. Macario Peralta which was based in the island of Panay in the Visayas. Also affiliated with this district is the Lobo Unit, the documents of which are also posted in this web site. This particular document1 is a transcription of an official letter from one Thomas J. Brown of the United States Army Western Pacific Command’s Adjutant’s officer informing the Philippine Army of the formal recognition of 159 personnel, merely a small fraction of the Pandita Area guerrillas.
