Infantry Point where we noticed recent scrapping! There is a 3 door heavy concrete bunker near Infantry Point and all of us immediately came to the conclusion that scrapping has been going on here recently. This bunker is not marked on any map!
This is sample #1. This picture is from the 30th Jan 2004 and no scrapping is visible on the smooth section of the left wall. This is the east entrance of the 3 door heavy concrete bunker at Infantry Point.
Sample #1, this is the same wall but 17th Jan 2010.
Sample #1, close up of the last shot.
Sample #2 and #3, this shot is from 10th Jan 2009 and is in the 3 Door heavy concrete bunker at Infantry Point.
Sample #2, that same scrapping area is now much larger and this image was shot on the 17th Feb 2010.
Last shot zoomed in, the cuts on the rebar certainly look fresh to me.
Sample #3 this is on the right wall, opposite of the last 2 images. This is new scrapping not visible on the earlier image, shot on 17th Feb 2010..
Sample #3, close up of the last shot, again a fresh cut.
Sample #4, this is from the 5th Dec 2007
Sample #4, this is from the 10th Jan 2009. Now rebar has been worked on and it is sticking out on the right side of that passageway.
Sample #4, this image is from the 17th Feb 2010; the rebar that stuck out before is now gone, cut off.
Sample #4, same area and date as the last image, just the shot in the other direction.
Sample #4, close up of rebar in the last 2 images, again fresh cuts of the rebar.
This is just one of many other fresh rebar cuts in the 3 Door heavy concrete bunker but for which I don’t have any ‘Before Images’.
Sample #5 This is the Middle Entrance of the 3 Door heavy concrete bunker near Infantry Point and was shot on the 10 Jan 2009.The right corner of the passageway, looking from the photographer doesn’t show and scrapping yet.
Sample #5, now on the 17th Jan 2010 the same corner shows extensive scrapping. This image was shot in the opposite direction of the last image.
This map shows the location of the famous C1 Control Station, Colonel Bunker's Station.
Sample #6 this 2004 image shows the support iron, lower level, left corner still in place, although much of the concrete of the ledge above has been chipped away. This is the C1 Station.
Sample #6 this and the next image were shot on the 15th Feb 2008 and the corner support irons are gone.
Sample #6 shows the right and the middle support irons are gone now which were still in place 2004. This and the last 2 images are of the C1 Station.
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.
