WEBSITE ENHANCEMENT PROJECT
If you have any form of digital or internet talent - we'd love to hear from you. We have in mind:
(a) a database program which can search all the
individual records of the 503d PRCT personnel;
(b) a Flash Welcome Page, which will operate a searchlight beam
guided by the user's mouse, highlighting each aspect of the site;
But we're open to suggestions.
THE CORREGIDOR DIGITAL ORDNANCE MAPPING PROJECT.
Project Major Sponsor & Coordinator: Martyn Keen of Perth, Australia.
Project Members: John Moffitt (Canada), Karl Weteke (USA) and Paul Whitman
It took us some years to acquire our first maps of Corregidor. We have been
reproducing them and selling them with all proceeds going towards my life of
wine, women and song, yachting off Santorini and my inclusion as a Mission
Specialist in the next
In association with Martyn Keen of Perth, Australia we are now digitizing
Corregidor with a series of freshly drawn maps based upon the historic
maps in our collection. The major project
involves the completion, in digital pdf form, of the 50, 20 and 5 foot
contour maps of Corregidor.
This will be cross-referenced with GPS precision, and a number of overlays and
subsidiary maps are being prepared.
Several other maps are being produced and
Currently, new members will be e-mailed a 1921
digital map upon receipt of their joining donation.
HONOR AWARDS PROJECT
Was a member of your family awarded an Honor Award involving Corregidor or
the 503d PRCT in
some way? Are you interested in doing some research of a worthwhile
nature? We are compiling pages for the major award winners of the 503d
PRCT, and (if there's anyone wanting to contribute to it, the Siege of
Corregidor.) We don't need money - just citations.
See a sample page.
ARCHIVE RESEARCH PROJECT
I am based in Australia and the Philippines, and haven't been researching in
the USA since 2001. So if you are inclined to become a researcher for
materials, or even to contribute digital copies of items you have found in
your travels, or in your Dad's footlocker, contact us.
MILITARY RECORDS PROJECT
If you are current, or retired Military, or even just a military buff, why
not start researching in this area? The great majority of items which we have
acquired relate to the 2d Bn of the 503d PRCT. The Morning Reports and Journals
of the other battalions are all entirely different, and we don't have any of
THE FORBIN PROJECT
The creation of an artificially intelligent self-aware computer that will run all of
America's nuclear defenses. Project Coordinator: Dr. Charles A. Forbin.*
Our major annual venture. In association with Corregidor Historic Society, a 1
week "intensive" exploration of The Rock is normally scheduled around
a significant date involving the island - for instance, we have raised a 48 star
US flag on the old Spanish flagpole each year for the last several years on16
February (the anniversary of the Parachute drop). This is not a guided tour, you
find your own way there, we promise nothing. - It is a get-together of people
interested in all aspects of Corregidor history, and who happen to enjoy each
other's company. Also a regular beer bust, due to
a recalcitrant Aussie participant. For the genuine Corregidor aficionados. Refer
reports about earlier visits.(2000,
This is an project to ensure that Charlie "Doc" Bradford's
manuscript is published. The manuscript has been utilized by every major
Corregidor historian, however the 503d PRCT Association now has the permission
of the Doc's estate to see the manuscript published. John Lindgren's Introduction
and Chapters 1 , 2 & 3 are featured on this website,
as a teaser. Don Abbott & Paul Whitman, Project Co-ordinator.

'EM ALL" PROJECT
The compilation of the authoritative history of 2/503
tracing it throughout WW2. Bill Calhoun & Paul Whitman, Project Co-ordinators.
about this Project
The preservation of the most comprehensive private collection of photos taken of
the 503d PRCT during the Mindoro and Negros campaigns. Steven Foster, Project
The photographs of the members from each State, taken on Mindoro after returning
from Corregidor, as printed in Templeman, are being transferred
from the original (but obsolete) glass negatives to safety film,
under the guidance of master photographer Fred Hill. They will then be
hand printed to Museum specifications, and eventually will be converted to
high resolution digital format. The ability to reproduce from fragile
glass negatives is a lost craft, and can now be accomplished by only the most
extraordinary craftsmen using custom built enlargers. Two sets of large
format film negatives are being produced, a master and a backup. Fred Hill
was a member of the 17th Photo Recon Squadron, which covered the return to
Corregidor. Bob Flynn, Project Sponsor & Co-ordinator;
team Members Fred Hill, Paul Whitman.
