I was stationed there at Quarry Heights from 1975-1978..I worked for the SSO (Special Security Office). We collected/disseminated Top Secret Crypto
info and briefed the CINC Southern Command, COS (Chief of Station CIA) & the American Ambassador. Our offices were at the very end of the 'tunnel'.
There were MP's at the entrance of the tunnel but we (SSO) controlled all security for the area. There was a com center on the left half way down the
tunnel, the watch command on the right plus a briefing room and at the very end of the tunnel was the SSO..It contained 'another watch officer'
which monitored all activity around the Heights with an NCO on duty. Across the hall from that was the SSO..it consisted of a LTC, Maj. and chief NCO,
plus four NCO's that ran the Top Secret Crypto Special intelligence ComCenter. I was on of those NCO's...continuing back into the tunnel were a
series of stairs with landings at intervals which led to the top of Ancon Hill. The opening was an old WWII gun emplacement. At the first landing we
had stored incendiaries to destroy all our equipment and code word keying material in case of attack. I lived right above the tunnel in NCO housing.
That was all that was in the tunnel....
