Zd165. Flickr 032. SWPA-Sig C-45-13268. This is the destroyed Battery Geary in Fort Mills, on Corregidor Island which was part of the Manila Bay and Harbor Defense Command. I don’t have the official image description. But it is safe to assume that we see Paratroopers from the 503d PIR patrolling thru the battery in Feb. 1945 after they jumped onto Corregidor, to liberate it, on the 16th Feb. 1945. In the distance, left, we see a machinegun Tower, it is located, looking from the photographer’s location, left and east of Battery Crockett.
