The following Wake Marines were transferred to a hospital in Shanghai (Assumed to be St. Luke's) on 8 May 1945 (the rest of the inmates from Kiangwan were shipped north to Fengtai):
Pl. Sgt. William D. Beck
Cpl. Robert E. Lee
Pfc. William Krenistki
Pfc. Harris L. Mercer
Pfc. LeRoy Moritz
Four of these men are in the photo (discounting the two civilian Contractors), but I can't tell you who is who. I will try to get a handle on which Contractors were left behind in May of 1945.
