Headhunters of Mindanao Island by Omsel.
I needed a better shot than i have so far to have printed as a gift to my friend who turns 197 this month, so had the pleasure to visit again the other day. We got into shooting right away almost and during this profile shoot i asked when he last cut his hair, which led to his story i will now relate from his perspective.

It was sometime during the war with the Japs, 1941 or so. It was getting tangled in the jungle as we hunted them. We cut off their heads and packed them in sacks then traded them for canned goods with the Americans. We were gorilla fighters and the good American Coronal McLaughlin made us a deal on the first delivery giving us an entire truck of canned goods as a bonus as we dropped off about 10 sacks of heads. Then he invited us into the compound and said give these guys any weapons they asked for. Well i asked how many rounds does that automatic hold and he said 20. Then asked about this machine gun and he said unlimited as they had long belts. Well i was young then (129) so took both.

Now we had loads of canned goods more than we could pack around so next delivery i asked the Coronal whats the best poison you guys have here. He showed me this liquid and said one drop would kill 10 men so i got a bottle. Carefully we made tiny pinholes in each can adding the poison and left it outside the Japanese camp near Bukidnon. By the next day it was all gone so next night we did it again. All 3000 in the entire camp died and day after we harvested the heads for the Coronal. He said it was the greatest kill of the Japanese/Philippine/American war.
