I think his unit, which was called a “Signal Air Wing Company”  had nothing to do with “Air Warning” and radar.  It was probably more likely involved with radio communications or even on-base telephone systems.  They may have  set up radio stations and  homing beacons for bomber or fighter groups at Philippine air fields. for example.



One of the duties of Air Warning Service companies was to operate radar units, so perhaps that is what his unit was doing.


Death March Marker
First pictures of American war prisoners during the infamous "March of Death" from Bataan to Japanese concentration camp at O'Donnell, Luzon, May 1942. Tattered column winds slowly through rugged Zambales mountains, in background. The heat and dust took its toll. These pictures were snapped by Japanese military photographer, and later seized by Filipino Guerrillas.
