344th FA - Capt. Stanley

344th FA - Capt. Stanley
Creator: Hughes, James Clark, 1888-1964
Date: March 20, 1928
Captain James C. Hughes photographed these men of the 344th Field Artillery Regiment, March 20, 1928. He mentioned Captain Stanley in his caption to the photo, perhaps he is the officer seated in front of the rest. They were probably taking part in ORC (Officer Reserve Corps) at Waco, Texas, as Captain Hughes had gone from ORC duty in Houston to Waco, Texas and was there from December, 1927 to July, 1929. James Clark Hughes was born in Topeka, Kansas, in 1888, and served in the Mexican Border Conflict, World War I, and World War II. He used an autographic camera to take pictures of friends, family, and places in the United States and Europe during and just after World War I. A full biography of James Clark Hughes is available at the link below to Kansapedia.

Officers Reserve Corps, Waco, Texas
Creator: Hughes, James Clark, 1888-1964
Date: July 18, 1928
This photo taken was taken July 18, 1928. Captain James C. Hughes was stationed in Waco, TX. These Army men are probably part of the ORC (Officers Reserve Corps) that Hughes assigned to. James Clark Hughes was born in Topeka, Kansas, in 1888, and served in the Mexican Border Conflict, World War I, and World War II. He used an autographic camera to take pictures of friends, family, and places in the United States and Europe during World War I. After the Armistice was signed November 11, 1918, Captain Hughes became part of the Army of Occupation. He finally returned to the U. S. arriving July 31, 1919 as part of the 13th Field Artillery, 4th Division. He was assigned to Camp Dodge, Iowa until August, 1920. Then Captain Hughes was assigned to the Motor Transport School, Camp Holabird, Maryland for training in Army vehicles for six months. From there Hughes and the 13th F.A. went to Fort Lewis, Washington. Hughes was the Battery Commander of the 13th F.A. During this time he had applied for enlistment in the Regular Army. On September 7, 1920 he was discharged from the National Guard and appoint to the Regular Army. It was then that Captain Hughes and his family moved to Schofield Barracks, Hawaiian Territory where they stayed until September, 1923. His next appointment was as Battery Commander of the 15th Field Artillery at Fort Sam Houston. In September 1924, Hughes attended the Battery Officers Course in the School of Artillery at Fort Sill, Oklahoma for nine months. From 1924 until 1933 the Hughes family continued to be moved frequently from Ft. Sill to Houston, to Waco, back to Hawaii and eventually to Long Beach. It was here in 1935 that Hughes was promoted to Major. By August of 1940 he had been promoted to Lt. Colonel. In 1941, he commanded a Philippine regiment (Filipino soldiers led by American officers), which surrendered in 1942 on the Bataan peninsula. Hughes spent the next 41 months in various Japanese P.O.W. camps. He was liberated by Russian forces at Camp Hoten, Manchuria, in 1945. He was assigned permanent limited duty status and April 1, 1946 was promoted to Colonel. He retired from the Army March 20, 1948. Hughes died in 1964 and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
