Corporal Higgins was a member of the US Military Police stationed at Hangar 51 in 1957. He served under the orders of Sergeant Jimmy Wycroft.


When Higgins, Wycroft, Private Mitchell and two other MPs were left on gate duty during the base's 24-hour lockdown, a bored Higgins, seeing some teenagers leaded by Jimmy Keegan racing an army truck, bet his sergeant that the truck would win. He lost the bet, though, when the teens in their hotrod outpaced the truck. It later turned out that the truck's occupants, supposedly an American army officer, "Colonel Truman" and his men, were actually soldiers of the Soviet Special Forces in disguise. They killed Higgins along with all the other MPs hid their bodies.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

In Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, no names are given for the policemen on guard at Hangar 51. Higgins's name is only indicated in the film's novelization.[2] It therefore remains unclear whether he is the M.P. in Guard Hut appearing in the film's credits who was played by Kevin Collins.[1]

In LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues, the MPs survive their encounter with the Soviets and taken as hostage. They are later forced to flee Hangar 51.[3]
