Flagstaff (on SE turret, intersected station) intact. From elsworth's 2005 log and my walking around the base with GPS I take it the Bolt is on NE turrett which isn't accessible to public. I was here late eve with thunder threatening. And they had remembered to lock the door. Must have a look up top sometime.
