Hey guys! Anyone know where to go relic hunting here in the Philippines? Maybe in Mt Samat or somewhere in Bataan? Cause i am trying to find specific battlefields that still might have helmets or anything as long its related to ww2..... Is there any relics that might be just on the surface instead of underground? PLEASE HELP
Most of the stuff disappeared in the 70's and 80's. You'll still find a few rusted odds and ends in Montalban, Rizal but most is gone. If you are willing to go investigate really remote areas, you might have a slim chance. The remains of a Nate Fighter were found on the slopes of Mt. Natib last year by a team looking for a crashed P40 and its pilot. instead, they found his japanese rival. Flee markets, old municipal halls and town museums/town officials are another possible source.
I've found quite a lot of stuff on Corregidor... The helmets I've found there (both Japanese and US) though were in such bad shape I didn't bother taking them home. The most far out item I've seen recovered from a tunnel near the airfield in Corregidor was a US .45 revolver, found by a kid. It was HUGE! It was missing the grips with very light rust. It looked like it could be easily restored. Middleside tunnel had parts of US M1911 pistols scattered all over, rusted like crazy.If you can find the entrance to the Navy Radio Intercept Tunnel you will probably find the mother lode. The Japanese blew themselves up inside this tunnel ahich sealed it off completely, so nobody's been inside it since the war. We've tried looking for a way to get inside, no luck. Another time when we were moving rocks to get inside Queen's Tunnel we spied a truck loaded with stuff left inside the tunnel. No way to move the rest of the rocks to get in to see what was on the truck and check out the rest of the tunnel as they were too big and heavy. I've seen Japanese helmets in Peleliu being used as flower pots. I've also been to the "Helmet Wreck" in Palau which had stacks and stacks of Japanese helmets. Saw lots of Japanese rifles and machine guns on Truk Lagoon. Dove a ship there that had 6 Zero fighters in a cargo hold. Some tanks as well. The Japanese wrecks in Coron used to have a lot of stuff but they are all gone now, taken by souvenir hunters. Some of the Japanese suff from Coron is on display at Capt'n Greg's dive shop in Puerto Galera. The Kyokuzan Maru near Club Paradise in Palawan had Japanese aircraft parts/ instrument panels, some cars, a motorcycle with sidecar, among other things...
Example... Found this inside a bunker on Corregidor, collar disc, 91st Coast Artillery, Philippine Scouts, maker marked on the back N.S. Meyer, New York.

louiejo1: I have designed and built a pretty faithful reproduction of the WW2 Japanese Type 89 Knee mortar for airsoft use. I takes standard 40mm gas grenades and has an effective range when held at a 45 degree angle of 120-130 ft.
