Quick question... did General Pio del Pilar, General Licerio Geronimo and General Manuel Tinio have revolutionary code names? Like Emilio Aguinaldo's 'Magdalo' and other nicknames?
Pio Del Pilar was named - Pang-una, which means Leader in Tagalog. I am not sure about Licerio Geronimos name, but I am positive he has one. Maybe Macky could chim in here...if anyone, he would know.
All the early and older members of the Katipunan had code names. But there is a strong possibility the more recent members and/or younger members might not have a code name. By recent, I mean joined the Katipunan during 1896 when membership started to grow at an alarming rate, and after the start of the revolution in late 1896. Manuel Tinio was only 18 when he joined in 1896. Gregorio Del Pilar also joined in 1896. I don't recall any code names for either. Code names were used to hide their identity, but once the revolution broke out, there was no more need to hide their names and use code names. Many of the Katipunan members began signing documents with their real name. Either way, I do have Tinios book...ill thumb through it tonight and see what comes up.
