“The galloping Ghost of the Java Coast

Marvin A Wynn



During the war my Grandparents clipped a local newspaper story about S1c Marvin A. Wynn who was a POW from the Houston.  I compared the clipping and your list from the Lost Battalion and found that they had his name wrong, Winn, Marvin R.  He died on the railroad at 100 kilo camp and is now buried in Plot B Row 0 Grave 1237 in Punchbowl Cemetery, Honolulu, Hawaii.  He shows up on the ABMC website and the VA website.  I will mail you a copy of the article and his picture from the newspaper tomorrow.  He was from Ft Stockton, Texas.  His family received his POW card December 28, 1943 and maintained hope for his return until the end of the war.  Sadly when they received the card he had been dead for 2 months.
