Zc745. This is a Seabee camp (Naval Construction Battalion, NCB) in the Matain River Valley in 1945. This is where barangay (village) San Isidro is located now; it belongs to the Subic Municipality. Along that ridge runs now the “Go Vic Subic Diversion Road”. In the Subic Bay area were at least three NCBs busy during that time, NCB-102, NCB-11 and NCB-133. This picture came from one of those NCB web pages.

Zc744. Propaganda Leaflets dropped over Subic Bay in 1944 or 45. I can make out three landmarks, at left is Camaya Point of the former Naval Magazine, Grande Island (ex Fort Wint) is in the mouth of Subic Bay, and the right valley is the former Agusuhin Village, Marine Corps Green Beach and now the Hanjin Shipyard. This picture could have been shot from above the area between Maquinaya and the present White Rock Resort.
This image came from the State Library of South Australia where WWII intelligence images are stored and it is credited to Mr. Nicholas Kerr. I present this picture again for better source and credit information.
