Exploration of the Fort's second Wash House, commandeered by the PLA is now complete. A few traces remain of its earlier function; a fragment of urinal or the brackets that held the cistern for example, but they are now all coated with later oily residues.

A card in a PLO envelope, has a message for Keith Millen about 'O' rings needed for a faulty valve. 'Nancy Sinatra wrote that These Boots Were Made for Walking...' begins a hand written note, which if topical dates it to 1966. My own boots nearly walked over it, as I pulled shut the door.
