Rizal Shrine in Fort Santiago
Last segment; 14 images have been added:
On the 7th of March 2017 a German friend and I visited the Rizal Shrine in Fort Santiago. I took many pictures but did not cover all the exhibits in this Rizal Shrine and Museum. So only a fraction of what is presented in the Shrine is presented here! It is very interesting. I certainly understand why Dr. Jose Rizal is such an important person in the history of the Philippines.
This and all the images in this album were shot on the 7th of March 2017 and it is an exhibit in the Rizal Shrine, located in Fort Santiago, Manila, Philippines. This is the album URL; this is the last segment. 14 images have been added and they show a display of commemorations and wider views of other displays and spaces in the Rizal Shrine. They ended up at the end of the album!
In this forum presentation only 5 images are shown and the pictures are smaller. Remember these images were shot in the Rizal Shrine on Fort Santiago in Manila. If you have a chance, visit the Rizal Shrine!!!!!!!!!
V824. This is large display in the Rizal Shrine of the many commemorations that have been generated all over the world on behalf of Jose Rizal.
V825. In Germany Jose Rizal was commemorated in 1964 and a street was named after him in Wilhelmsfeld near Heidelberg. The Philippine Historical Committee placed a plaque in the house where he stayed in 1886. Here is the translation of the Plaque: Jose Rizal Street - Jose Rizal 1861-1896 - National Hero of the Philippines - Wrote the last part of his Novel: -Noli me Tangere - In this house when he was the guest of Pastor Ullmer 1886.

Marine Niece: My uncle, James P. Shockman USMC was a .50 caliber machine gunner, I believe on Caballo. Is there a roster anywhere of a small detachment of Marines who came in January of 1942 to Caballo as machine gunners. Any photos?

Marine Niece: Chadhill: Thank you for the sources! They've become part the story I'm writing about James's Marine service and his death. Do you think it's at all possible for me to recover my uncle's body and bring it home?

chadhill: Marine Niece: Very possible. Call USMC Service Casualty Office to register as family member at 800-847-1597. They will want a DNA sample. See FAQ at www.dpaa.mil/Contact/Contact-Us. Be sure to request his Individual Deceased Personnel File.

Marine niece: About 5PM 5/6/42, my uncle swam from the shelter of some Caballo cliff caves to help someone swimming from Corregidor. Returning, he was resting in the water by rocks when he was bombed and killed. Are there cliff caves east of the north dock near Fuger

cbuehler: Caballo Island is almost all cliffs etc. I have to say that a swim from Corregidor to there would be quite a feat even for an outstanding swimmer, given the distance, frequently rough water and sharks that were there.

batteryboy: There were a number of natural caves along the steep and rocky shoreline of Caballo. Not that deep though. There is a slight slope from the shore line leading to Battery Fuger but I cant recall any natural caves when i circled the island.
