Zf084. This seems to have been a former CFI visitor reception and even a camping site; but now houses a Philippine Marine Detail who helps Corregidor save together with their Navy Comrades. Notice Malinta Hill is in back. Since the virus crises started it seems CFI did not renew or terminated the contract with a civilian security service and the Philippine Military sent two teams over here to help, apparently that stated in March or April last year. I did not take a picture but I talked to 3 young people who stayed one night and brought tents, they had rigged their tents not o far from the South Dock.

Zf083. This building, right now, houses a Philippine Navy Team (Navy SEALS) who help keeping Corregidor Island safe from marauders, scrappers, unauthorized visitors etc. This building is located in the former San Jose, the former main village on Corregidor, at the west foot of Malinta Hill. Before that it served as a restaurant with other services like renting a tent. It appears it was built by the Philippine Navy before I started visiting Corregidor in 2004, because 4 Navy Ratings are engraved at a former Flagpole base including their names and rates.

Zf093. This is the last picture of my visit, I actually only saw it on the 19th, Friday, the day of my departure. It is a new sign from the new CFI Management as to what the fees are. It is located where the boats from Bataan land, just inside the Fort Mills North Mine Dock, North Shore, Bottomside, Corregidor Island.

Not sure that these are the right trees for this soil but they are hanging in there and I take a picture, every time I come to see how they are doing.

Zf091. The post war, rebuilt, San Jose Chapel on Corregidor Island at Bottomside. CFI is opening the doors and windows during the day and when no rain to air it, ventilate it, to help it stay in good conditions.

Zf090. This is the toilets at the West Entrance Malinta Hill Tunnel and they need attention. In view of these conditions I assume further that the west entrance to the Malinta Hill Tunnel is secured and the generator building plus this toilet facility are not needed right now.

Zf089. This is the entrance to the fuel storage of the former Fort Mills Malinta Hill Tunnel, once one ducks under, thru that over growth in the last image. It is an awe inspiring sight to see the crumbled, crushed huge fuel tanks, caused by explosions in the tunnel.

Zf088. This is the entrance to the fuel storage of the former Fort Mills Malinta Hill Tunnel. It is also on the west side, a short distance behind the former Generator Building for the Video Light and Sound Show, when a contractor was running the show; near the main west entrance to the tunnel.

Zf087. These are new electrical wires running from Bottomside to the Malinta Hill Tunnel; I assume the electricity for the Video Light and Sound Show comes directly from the CFI generators in the Engineering Ravine now.

Zf086. This is the West Entrance of Malinta Hill Tunnel. In the about last 4 years or so rock slides at this entrance has become a problem. Hence, we see the new sign re the rock slides and a warning to stay out of the area. I assume when they had the Video Light and Sound Show during my visit days that the visitors entered and departed from the East Entrance.
