4 A Critical Reminiscence - In 1963, Lt. Col Ray G Lawrence wrote of his experiences at East Point - the sector of beach where the first and second  Japanese waves came ashore - directly under his guns.  His unit consisted of himself, a Filipino 3rd Lieutenant, and 35 Philippine Scouts. By dawn, with the third wave turning back, there were approximately 500 Japanese effectives remaining on the island. After establishing a skirmish-line to deal with these stragglers, he saw a boat under a white flag on its way to Ft. Hughes.  Out of communication with Lawrence, and thus unaware of Lawrence's success, and with a mind to humanitarian aspects he could not conceive the Japanese would disregard with complete arrogance, General Wainwright had already surrendered.  (File requires Adobe Reader)
