JAMES TAYLOR IRWIN
JOSEPH IRWIN (1928 - 2005)
January 31, 2005
I would like to see the names of both my father and my grandfather added to the list as they were both interned at Santo Tomas.
My fatherís name is Joseph Irwin. He was at Santo Tomas from the ages of approximately 13 Ė 17 years old.
My grandfatherís name is James Taylor Irwin. He was injured during the repatriation, being hit by a U.S. Army vehicle and losing his leg. He died several years later from cancer. I never met him.
Any info or pictures anyone has regarding them would be wonderful to hear or see.

My father, Joseph Irwin, died of natural causes (heart failure) Monday, October 31, 2005. He was born April 29, 1928. He was interned at Santo Tomas. I appreciate the pepperbud updates and would like them to continue. We donít have much info regarding Dadís time at Santo Tomas and would appreciate any tidbits anyone might have about him.
Best regards, Jim Irwin
