Hopefully it's made up a little for my...uh....less-than-speedy updating of a few things I promised :lol:

Marvelous work! Not sure that the British would be able to sieze outright control of the Phillipines though without a full scale, costly, and draining invasion. There were 7,000 well trained scouts under arms plus more than 10,000 constables with military training and equipment. The goverment was well establisehed and was preparing its third petition for independance to present to the U.S. Congress. It is true that the Washington treaty of 1922 prevented them from developing as robust a military infastructure as they might have liked but it was far from non-existant. The Philipinos are a proud and capable people and the British would have faced an armed uprising every bit as fierce as the one America faced. It took 15 years for America to end the war, and at its peak 75,000 American troops were involved. In 1930 any insurgency would be better armed than the original with a full array of artillery, machineguns and small arms provided by the U.S. military from its massive WW1 surplus.The scouts were considered a part of the U.S. Army, trained equipped and paid by them. Diplomatically such an action would also likely spur a response from Japan. In practical terms massive clandestine aid to facilitate British distraction and further enhance the insurgents capabilities. Historically The Japaneese had a massive commitment of troops and resources to try and keep the lid on things and were bled every day from 1942-1945. At the end of three years occupation the Japaneese Army only remained in control in 12 of 48 provinces when McCarthur returned. An amazing and warm hearted people as fierce as tigers with a passion for freedom.

Tank, thanks for the review!

I agree 100% on the Phillipenes. However canon established that Britain had took over control.

And, in a way I can see them taking the Phillipines, at least in the early confusion.

I didn't cover it, because I might go back and write a Phillipine sourcebook. I plan on having it where Britain maintains control over the largest cities, and some chunks of the Phillipines, while the rest is a semi-friendly area, traveled by large convoys with autogyro cover.
