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.

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.

chadhill: ArmyAirCorp: Yes, Rutledge mentions meeting George Thomas from TN at Las Pinas Airfield 10/11/43. At end of book mentions he is dead (no details). There is no book index for me to check so your great uncle may be mentioned even more often.

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?
