;D ;D in that case, I'll push you up the mountain in your chair, we'll get you on of those beer hats with some ice cold cans of san mig for you to enjoy on the way up.

What was inside the coffin that you found inside the bank vault? They did loot dutch banks in Indonesia and take all the safety deposit boxes of the rich colonialists and traders who stories their wealth gathered up from the colonies of south east Asia.

Julio, Yamashita and their men were blasting all the trails in the North on their way to surrender in Kiangan, Ifugao, when they parted ways and Yamashita surrendered in the old school building which was later burned down, and Julio stayed behind in the wilderness, submerging himself into the population of PH and was later given an identity from the INC. Within one monsoon season, the fierce nature would reclaim the land and eliminate all evidence of their old trails, just speculating that's why there was no evidence of the old road, or trails they used in central Mindanao, otherwise they used the rivers as roads up to the mountain top?

Either way, amazing stories, Thanks and best wishes to you guys in Swaziland  :P

Nice.

Yes, they erased the roads and planted vegetation on the trail to grow back.  Years ago we opened a tunnel bunker to find 4 trucks, all 3 axle 4x4 shoved in nose to tail.  That bunker was 3-4 day hike up the mountain with a full Forrest and NO known roads up.  55 years later there was no trace.  Scratched our heads on that one.

OK Jackson, you push while I drink San Mig.

Julio gave me a set of Samurai swords that belonged to Yamashita's pilots.  Along with a leather flight helmet and a written poem and hachimaki head band.  The swords are a special size short katana almost a wakizashi , easier to get into a cockpit.

When they arrived here, not only were they tasked with burying all the remaining loot being shipped in from Manchuria and the other conquered lands, but also they were ordered to transfer all the deposits that Gen. Homma and his men had buried. They moved all but one of Hommas sites. Not only did they move them, but they reversed all the markings and meanings that Homma and his men had devised. and just to screw with them, upon excavating the Homma deposits and moving them to a new location, they would then put back all the markers and indicators left by Hommas teams, all in the correct place and covered it back accordingly. This is why some people dig in Luzon and find many markers, and go on for years without finding one gram of gold. Yamashitas men used different map drawing techniques so any returning soldiers from Hommas divisions, would not be able to interpret a Yamashita map. As Zobex has pointed out before, the political rivalries between the Jap factions, were rife and fierce. And though many are distracted with Yamashita and Homma, the real interesting general was Tanaka.

These are very enlightening!
 if ever were true.

Just imagine, finding a positive marker is not enough, you have to acertain it was not from homma's team

Zeeker.  Now that I am old and one foot in my grave or is that burial urn, I will try go post a pic of one of the ancestral samurai swords of General Shizuichi Tanaka.  It has a gold "mon" on the side of the saya (scabbard).  The handle ie tsuka is wrapped in a salmon colored silk wrap, now all faded to kind of tan.  That color and green was the colors chosen for the wraps of the last of the samurai in the 1877 samurai rebellion.  Tanaka had quite the history, a real soldier.  Was called the map keeper for the treasures buried in the PH.
