This map shows all the places Tom Aring took pictures and they are in sequence.View it at 'Full Size' to read my writing! I got it from 'corregidor.org' web page.
This is from a 'paid for' RP Gov.map, 1:50000. I marked it again where Tom Aring took his pictures. View it at 'full size' to read my writing. Tom spent 10 days each in Dec-06 and Jan-07 on Corregidor.
The front of the Fort Hill Hospital; a tree crashed on it from the direct hit typhoon in Dec-06. I don\'t think it was too serious. Tom Aring was a Peace Corps Volunteer in his early days and fell in love with the Philippines.
The inspection 'man hole' of the famous 'Duck-Walk-Tunnel'. The Corregidor Hotel, I believe, is using this for some of their guests to make their visit more interesting.The tunnel is about 120 feet long.
This is the entrance to 'Duck-Walk-Tunnel', this pic is from me Jan-04. It is located between Battery Way and the Hospital, closer to ' Battery Way'. Some writings on the wall remain from the GIs who took shelter here in 1942.
Malinta Hill,West-Face; a small land slide can be seen to the right and level from the Tunnel-West-Entrance.It is from the 2006 Typhoon Season.
This pic shows the 'Malinta Point'. It is from the Corregidor pages of the 'Hawaiian Web-Master'. The next two pics are from that point. Note: the Enlisted Men Beach is around that corner.
A landslide at the very Malinta Point. Tom took two pics, he couldn't get it all on one pic. He thinks more is ready to come down.
This at the same spot, at the bottom of the slide,at Malinta Point.It is already cleaned up.
View across the former Enlisted Men Beach cove, showing a recent landslide there.
This is more or less the same area of the Enlisted Men Beach, shot by me Jan-05.
This is the 92nd Garage area, called so because it was used by the 92nd CA (PS). Caballo Island,ex Ft.Hughes in back, Tom is showing here that much of the break water is gone from this Typhoon Season.
A resort was built here but it was not successful and it is now abandoned.This area is really infamous because the Jap.Agressor kept 10,000 plus POWs here for about 2 weeks with almost no water and very little provisions in May 1942.
This wreck here at 92nd Garage occured after Mar-06 and before Aug-06.It was a Manila Bay tour boat.Before the 92nd CA (PS) took over this place it was used by Army float planes, 2 large hangars were here.
This is on the East-End of the 92nd Garage area and shows beach erosion. In the slopes behind that tree is a tunnel.
This pic, I shot Aug-06.It shows much of the 92nd Garage area, the new wreck, and the erosion spot and tree of the previous pic near that smoke.
The almost 'Mile Long Barracks'; it is now in three section due to all the bombardment.The map on the 2nd image already shows the ruins in three sections. In this most western part Gen.McArthur had his Command Offices.
This is a real Historical Spot. On 16 Feb.1945 the 462nd Parachute Field Artillery Battalion made their Command Post here.They were attached to the 503rd Parachute Regiment. Topside Parade Ground in back.
This pic came from the 'corregidor.org' web site. It was shot Jan-01, here is the former Battalion Commender, Arlis Kline visiting his old Cammand Post.
This pic is from Kevin Hamdorf, a Subic Bay photographer, shot Jan-05.The 462nd PFAB CP was on the 2nd floor by the right stair ways.Tom used the stair ways left to go up the 2nd floor but didn't try to go up to the 3rd.
These were the steps Tom Aring used to get to the 2nd floor of the Mile Long Barracks. These steps are near the 462nd PFAB CP. Notice: the freshly fallen concrete pieces on the floor and his 'anti snake' stick.
A look back to the 462nd PFAB CP from the protruding section of the Mile Long Barracks, where the steps are, Tom used, to come up.
The open bay area of the Mile Long Barracks,2nd floor,inwards from the 462nd PFAB CP. Tom notes that much of the wall paint is still intact.
This is one of the gables on the opposite side of the Mile Long Barracks from near where the 462nd PFAB CP was.There are,were 2 of these gables on each side of the barracksat the middle, part of the protruding section.
2013-02-12 Near those steps in the last image is this large concrete block. It came from what explosion? It looks a little similar like the mystery concrete near the Japanese gun on the Morrison Hill slopes.
2013-02-12 Barrio San Isidro had a separate road towards the Stockade Level and crossed a small creek with this bridge between the Barrio and the Nipa Quarters.
2013-02-12 These steps go down the slope on the north side of the San Isidro Rise coming from that long walkway which runs pretty much on a north-south axis.
2013-02-12 Here is a walkway at the SE corner of the former barrio San Isidro at Fort Mills on Corregidor Island in Manila Bay
2013-02-12 These are foundations for houses at the SE corner of the former barrio San Isidro at Fort Mills on Corregidor Island in Manila Bay
2013-02-12 This is a low embankment for the road on the SE corner of barrio San Isidro near the Nipa Quarters.
This map pretty much describes what I seen so far as what is left from Barrio San Isidro and what is in this album.
2013-02-12 San Isidro is on a rise and here are some steps between the two different in height street levels. These steps are on the SE corner of barrio San Isidro near the Nipa Quarters.
2008-09-23 View from the former Barrio San Isidro Rise towards the Middleside parade grounds. The house was the former and post WWII Aviary residence and is now used by the American couple doing research and promotion for Corregidor.
