Old graffiti from french sailors in cave on desert island (Halong Bay, Vietnam)

Those graffiti were apparently made by sailors from the french war ship Georges Leygues in 1938.­ Most graffiti are dated January 28-29, (19)38 and have a reference to the Georges Leygues.­

Some graffiti are also dated March 2, 1930.­ The Vietnamese guide told us that this cave had been used by French soldiers as a prison (not sure if this is correct, but it is plausible).­
