I first heard of the Cuyo Islands while reading “Odyssy of a Philippino Scout” by Richard Kendal Whitehead, a U.S. Army Officer who was assigned to Ft. Stotenburg [inside of Clark Airbase, Angeles City, Pampanga] in Jan. 1941 to the 26th Calvary. In December Lt. Whitehead faced the Japanese bombing of Clark Airbase then the Invasion at Linguyen Gulf. Over the next two years he would spent his time crawling in the Jungle to avoid the Japanese, and some Filipinos who had become either anti-American or pro Japanese or both. Eventually, after being captured and escaping, he found the Cuyo Islands which was harboring other Americans, mostly from Palawan. He found the locals to very friendly but his sense of loyalty to the U.S. caused him to take a sailboat to Austrialia where he re-integrated himself back into the Army. In fact one Cuyono [which is how he refered to the locals] Reynaldo Abadiano accompanied him on this fantastic sailing voyage to Austrialia and joined the U.S. Army. Since reading his account, Whitehead convinced me to go to the Cuyo Islands as soon as possible. This blog convinces me further, so, l expect to visit there soon
