Re: Other ships used in repatriating POW's from the PI.
My Great uncle was aboard the JOHN LYKES sailing from Manila after being freed from Los Banos. His name was Elmer Madsen and he would have been 65 at the time. On ancestry.com the entire passenger manifest is there (actual copy). I happened upon this thread looking for a photo of the ship. Manifest indicates departure from Manila as March 25 1945 arrival San Pedro CA May 2 1945.
