The only group representing the Bataan early war is that unit representing the "Angels of Bataan". They are a medical unit and I remember they approach us for info on the Bataan nurses as they wanted to honor the Angels of Bataan. And so they did it. Great more focus on the early war in the Philippines.
As for our PS Living history company there is no photographic evidence they participated in the parade in review.
Hey Guys I didnt march during both opening ceremonies only because I arrived around 11am Sorry I didnt take any pictures. I was in full battle gear and happily on guard duty while the troops played in the field.
While they were gone I entertained the passersby most of the people were asking about the 1919A4 Browning and the Garand I was carrying. It was hot both days Gil Mislang couldn't make Sunday due to a leg injury (I hope he is okay)
Richard Gross from San Diego played "Dug Out Doug" on Saturday while Dennis Leslie came on Sunday According to Gross they agreed to alternate, since at one time there was both of them on the same events.

Saluting when pressed up against the next man is always a problem, especially the Brits. salute with the arm rising from the side to deliver a flat/palm facing hand. G.I's though can lift their arm from the front. Why did 2 soldiers not salute? Jap attack looked very good. Who were the Cuban War (or Phil/AM) Guys? The "Spaniards had a nice little cannon there I see.-david
