SUBJECT: BATTERY GEARY - TODAY - PART 3

Part 1: Battery Geary Air Raid Shelter FOTS2/110711-1 Read Field Note 1
Part 2: Vintage photos of Battery Geary FOTS2/110711-2 Read Field Note 2
Part 3: Battery Geary today FOTS2/110711-3 You're here already!

 

In my opinion, Battery Geary is well worth a visit even though many will tell you that little remains to be seen. Men died here and this battery more than earned its place in Corregidor WWII history.

If you are among the majority of day tourists, here is the brief view you will see of Battery Geary (assuming the bus actually stops for a minute).
 


This is what you will see from the side of the road as you travel from Topside back to Bottomside.


"Ok, day tour crowd stay on the bus, itís time to move along!"

"The rest of you, follow me."
