Battery installation/direction for Pentax 645 film

In the Pentax 645 (film) camera, I am having trouble assuring that I am installing the six AA batteries correctly. The problem is that one of the "battery direction" printed indicators is missing (apparently because of a leaking battery from some previous owner). The battery in question is the lowest battery per the attached photo. Perhaps someone could have a look at their battery holder from the same orientation as the attached photo and either verbally or photographically let me know the correct battery direction.

Thank you very much.

+ve at the bottom (the same as the battery on the right). It's actually the other way up from the rear battery on the other side.

Thank you very, very much. I have the batteries in correctly now. I will now look to find some manner of marking correct polarity.
