I found a tunnel and a ruined direction slab next to the Wilson Trail near PB215 (current marker).

Is the tunnel related to PB215?

I walked up to the hillside to the current marker but coundn't find any sign of PB215

For the slab, could it be the slab with text PB 217 218 214 (215) 61 63?

The coordinates are 22.363126   114.196096

From memory, that tunnel wasn't associated with 215. The marker was close to the PB, but I can't remember how far. The PB is on the top of a ridge above the path. The path changes direction noticeably to go around the position. The entry is from a wider section of the path before the PB (coming from Shatin Pass direction). There was a concrete entry trench but the tunnel doesn't exist any more. There was a lot of rubble and debris between there and the PB. Only the right side and front of the PB was obvious, the rest buried in a landslip. The whole area was covered in heavy vegetation. (1995)
