Malinta Tunnel in Corregidor Island

Corregidor - One of the Last Great Bastions of the Allied Forces

Corregidor is a tadpole-shaped island located some distance to the west of Manila, at the mouth of Manila Bay. Even before its Hispanic occupation, the island which was first known as San Jose was used by numerous parties as the ideal vantage point from which to ambush vessels entering Manila Bay. Later on, under the Spanish government and later the American one, it reverted to more noble purposes: being a sentry point to warn against intruders, a welcoming light to galleons coming home and a lighthouse point to guide the ships to safety. It was under the Americans that the island truly began to flourish into a well-planned settlement for the Philippine Scouts that comprised the majority of Corregidor's military garrison.
