I don't know about all this lost treasure talk but I'll give you boys something to do.  I lived on Clark Airfield in 1966.  I was an 11 year old boy.  There was a hill in the middle of the base that at the time had some type of electronic equipment at the top and it was off limits.  But only the top was off limits.  It was called Lilly Hill at the time.  The sides were covered in jungle and I used to go exploring up in the hill.  I found several bunkers dug into the side of that hill and they were old WWII bunkers.  I went into a few of them but they were dark and the bats and bugs freaked me out.  Anyway, no-one that I know of at the time ever walked in there but me because I found WWII stuff laying around in the open like land mines.  I never told my folks because I knew they would not let me go back.  On one excersion I found something BIG buryed in the dirt and I dug on it for days.  It had the japanese sun emblem on it and it was flat like a huge door or a tailgate off a big dump truck.  I don't know what it was because I gave up on it.  It was too big and too heavy.  When I lived there one side of Lilly Hill faced the base housing and that's the side I explored the most and where I found the japanese stuff.  The other side of the hill was the NCO and some other buidings it's hard to remember.  If anyone else ever was stationed there and reads this thread they can confirm the existance of this hill.  I don'tknow if those bunkers were ever found again.  Some of them had been covered but I guess the rains exposed them again but the openings were small and hardly noticable.  I crawled thru one bairly got thru as an 11 year old.  Came right back out!  I'm not saying I saw something glittering or whatever.  The japanese metal door or what ever it was was at the base of the hill laying flat on the ground, not up on the side.  If you face the side of the hill from the residences where I lived, I think it would be located about 2/3 of the way to the East at the bottom of the hill.  I will never return so there you go, its all yours.  Clark is no longer there for those of you who don't know.  The town of Angeles City was nearby.  By the way I loved the Phillipino people they were good to us.

I don't know what you found buried there but I do know why the hill was off limits. The SatCom station was there. They always picked the highest place and since disrupting the station meant loss of communications, it was always off limits. Every base has one, mate. In time of real crisis, they wouldn't rely only on the commercial telephone lines.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

If I were a treasure hunter in the Phillipines I would go to places like Lilly hill and take my metal detector.  I heard stories of people finding buried caches of japanese rifles still in the crates, etc.  And you know when the invasion was upon them I bet alot of people buried stuff to keep it out of japanese hands.  There are caves and bunkers all over those islands dug by the japanese and the resistance.  You'd stay busy for the rest of your life digging relics and maybe even stumble across the you-know-what?Huh???  But at least you'd have something to show for all your exploring.

I loved Clark AFB and Subic Bay. Never treasure hunted there. The Barrio I will never forget. I wish that I was into treasure when I was in the Navy. I know that there is unlimited places to look though.

Do you remember the hill with the electronics on it kinda in the middle of the base?  I've been to Google Earth and I think I've located it.
