Zd900. This is one of 5 images of the grave/tomb site of Ernest J. Gaines, a legend in Subic Bay. These pictures were shot on the 31st of Jan 2021. The grave plaque is removed; the tomb was entered and closed again. So, most likely the story, the previous lady told me, is true that the remains were brought to Ilo Ilo. The man in the picture helped me find the tomb. He said that one time he and others stopped people monkeying around on the tomb. As you can see houses have been built all around the tomb now, since the opening of the Hanjin Ship Yard Road, many people have settled here.
