William Read Memorial 78533662
2nd Lt. William Woodgate Read was a member of A Company, 192nd Tank Battalion. He was stationed in the Philippine Islands on December 7, 1941. Ten hours after Pearl Harbor, his battalion was guarding Clark Airfield when the Japanese bombed the airfield.
On December 30, 1941, his tank came under enemy fire. An enemy shell hit one of the tank tracks immobilizing it. He climbed out of the tank, while it was under fire, and was helping his tank crew out of the tank, when an enemy shell hit the tank near him mortally wounding him.
One of his crew members, Ray Underwood, held Read in his hands as he was dying. Other tank crew members went for help but failed to return before the area was overrun by the Japanese. Underwood held Lt. Read, in his arms, until he died.
Pvt. Ray Underwood later died of disease in a Japanese POW Camp in Japan.

Lockamy info
I stand corrected. John Lockamy and Mildred McGowan did have one son, John Robert Lockamy.

McGowan error
The information on Mildred McGowan is erroneous. She was the daughter of Major H. McGowan and his wife, Elizabeth Hobbs of Onslow County. She had two children out of wedlock before marrying John Lockamy. No children by this marriage.
