|The Shipping lanes around Marinduque during WW2 were heavily used by the Japanese to
move men and supplies to the Southern Philippines. This also became a favorite hunting
spot for U.S. Submarines. Some of the people on Marinduque met the crews firsthand.
Alfredo Sienna was awarded a medal. An unknown group gave a sub a new mascot, a
chicken. Check out these stories under the sub's names HERE
New information about the U.S. Naval bombing of the Japanese ships in Balanacan
has been uncovered. From the book "Double Life Sentance" by E.B. Misa Jr., read
the former Director of the Bureau of Corrections eyewitness account at the
Balanacan Bombing Eyewitness Page.
A new section has been added for WW2 on Marinduque. The WW2 Marinduque Naval
Invasion Home page serves as the starting point for Daily log entires by United States Naval
Forces involved in the liberation of Marinduque from the Japanese forces. At the moment it
covers the time period of January thru May of 1945. Where available, pictures of the
vessels that were at Marinduque during this time are shown as well as information about
each type of vessel. You will discover that in March of 1945, Balanacan was used as a
forward base for PT Boats based in Mindoro. I hope you enjoy this new part of
Marinduque's diverse history.
