INTRODUCTION

"Under New Management" -  Japanese Infantry Checkpoint at Mariveles, 1943.

This trip report is too large to post all at once, so I will break it into three separate sections.

There is a "navigation" tag stapled to the top of the first and the bottom of the last page of each of the three parts. To go to the next part, click the text on the tag. 

In the past Karl and I have talked about the Navy Tunnels that were located in Mariveles, Bataan. Last year he got the ball rolling with the result that two tunnels can now be entered. You can also visit the locations of three more inaccessible tunnels.

By early January it was time for a trip to meet up with Karl and go exploring. After the tunnels we planned to see other war related areas and go find a fire control station on nearby Cochinos Point. We would even go off to the 'Points' if we had time.
