Last Morse-Code Messages from Corregidor

These are the Morse-code transmissions which then-corporal Irving Strobing sent during the hours before Corregidor fell to the Japanese on May 6, 1942.  They were received in Hawaii and, weeks later, the transcriptions were published in American newspapers.

Strobing, meanwhile, was a Japanese prisoner of war. 

It was not until February 16, 1945, that American troops were able to return to the island of Corregidor.
