I’m approaching the Engineering Ravine and will short cut up to the right onto the North Shore Road.
Between the cliff to the North Shore Road and the Engineering Wharf are these small fishing boats of Corregidor Island residents.
On the North Shore Road this old tree got my attention, I’m sure it was around in 1945 and could tell a tale or two.

The road to Battery Point from the North Shore Road, now only a trail, barely.
The culvert under the road to Battery Point, close to it’s end and close to the shore line.
The same culvert from the sea, beach side.
About 12 feet or so, up -ravine from the road culvert is this box culvert, a little dislodged and remaining about 8 feet long.
Up from it were also many small concrete pieces, where did they come from? Read description below here!
Battery Point. What was this? Was it VII-M-6? It is very hard to tell what any of these structures where!
Same structure, was it VII-M-6?
Was this VII-S-2?
Looking toward Malinta Point and Bottom side. On the beach at Battery Point are many small concrete pieces.
Close-up of last pic.
At Battery Point is also this cemented wall, was it part of the infantry defense trench?
Same area as last pic looking west.
Where I thought were Search Light #1 should have been I found this but again I am not sure!
Same structure, is it the Search Light #1 or VII-M-4?

At the big bend of the North Shore Road I went up to VII-M-4.
The magazine of VII-M-4
Before going up to VII-M-4 I looked at this 1 of 4 structures John Moffitt and I know of.I call it it a "Mobile Shelter".
The Mobile Shelter, behind it,on that ridge is the way up to VII-M-4 and the Japanese gun.
