astonishing news reports from Southern Philippines suggested that there may yet be Japanese soldiers hiding out in the forests there! As of now, Japanese diplomats were still trying to establish contact with the two men, who should be in their eighties.

I remembered the relics of the Pacific War that I had seen in Palau; submerged Zero planes, wrecked landing crafts, pillboxes, helmets, empty cartridges and sakae bottles. Palau was the scene of terrible fighting when the US marines landed.
