This was found inside a cave on Peleliu. Tough looking fighters!
Actually, I use aerial archival photos showing Peleliu's denuded ridges for orientation and exploration. Otherwise would be impossible to get a bearing and systematic search. I've been lost more that once and you wouldn't want to end up spending the night in those ridges! The spirits still call out....Wow, that is one cool artifact. Hard to believe how the photo held up after 60 years in the damp tropical island.
Years ago, I went scuba diving in Palau, but never thought to hop over to Peleliu and to some cave exploration. Do you just machete your self into the vegetation ?
