Description

"Claire Phillips (High Pockets) operator of the Tsubaki Club - Espionage par excellent. Author of 'Manila Espionage' Binfords & Mort 1947" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Our Beautiful Spy. Claire Phillips operated the Tsubaki Club in Manila, a secret center for Allied underground and Filipino guerilla activities. Known to the Allies as 'High Pockets,' Phillips hosted Japanese military brass and extracted information from them. After the Battle of Manila ended, Hill's friend Dale Risdon met Phillips and took these photos of her and her child. Hill saved these images, sent them to Martha, and noted that Phillips 'is holding a lot of cans with bails and a little child is standing beside her.' After the war, Hill contributed ten photographs to Claire Phillips' book, 'Manila Espionage." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
