Search for WW2 Gold

Anyone been watching this on Blaze? I don't know how faked it is.
They've uncovered a Japanese tunnel in the Philippines and there looks as though there's loads of other tunnels too.

I doubt the Japs did any of the digging, the place is probably a mass wargrave of allied prisoners of war!

The Japanese also used large numbers of forced civilian labour too - the Thai Burma railway had perhaps 4 times as many civilian labourers as PoW but with a much higher death toll; 1 in 5 PoW 1 in 3 labourers.
The one thing to remember about an adventure is that if it turns out the way you expect it to, it has not been an adventure at all.

makes me shudder to think, as if the forced labour wasn't bad enough, those who worked on secret sites for the Axis Alliance, even if they survived the work they wouldn't be leaving the site, to keep the secret.
