Zd261. Flickr 068. A rare picture of a Navy LCI (G) at the very moment, firing off her rockets. Although the description is not clear, there is no doubt this at the assault on Corregidor in 1945. The LCI (G) is south of Corregidor, just some distance from the mouth of the Government Ravine. I recognize the Bataan Peak of Mt. Mariveles, left and the Mt. Limay Peak, right, on the other side of Corregidor. This action must have been, just before the Paratroop drop on Corregidor and the amphibious landing at the south shore, just right of this picture on the 16th Feb. 1945.

Zd270. Flickr 077. A combat debris field but the picture does not have a description. It could be on Corregidor, because it was in the folder of many Corregidor combat images. What type of gun is that? Is it a Japanese gun?

Zd268. Flickr 075. USS Nashville (CL-43) was a light cruiser and has an interesting WWII history, Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Nashville_(CL-43) It looks like some sailors went ashore and took some pictures, perhaps they landed with Gen. MacArthur.
Nashville provided fire support and carried General of the Army Douglas MacArthur to the amphibious operations at Hollandia (present-day Jayapura), Tanahmerah Bay, and Aitape, on 22–23 April 1944.
Nashville twice more carried General MacArthur and his staff to the invasion of Morotai, Dutch East Indies in mid-September. She carried General MacArthur on his return to the Philippines, for which she sailed from Manus on 16 October. She provided fire support for the Leyte Island landings on 20 October, and she remained on station at the mouth of Leyte Gulf until 25 October, guarding the troops on the beachhead and the nearby transports.

Zd266. Flickr 073. This is a close-up of the last image Flickr 072. Well, it seems to be a close-up shot of the conning tower, LCT-724, making its run to the south shore of Corregidor, called Black Beach for the amphibious assault on the 16th Feb. 1945.
