Various other images show here; people have been showed with gold glitter-like stuff, and Mrs. Yajima has apparently acquired the ability to heal people. Ongoing?
Nanking area: China and Japan were at war..the Japanese were advancing on Nanking. The Chinese commander, Colonel Li Fu Shen decided to make a stand in some hills near the Yangtze River. The next day, the commander tried to make radio contact with his troops as they were deployed along various positions, but was unable to reach them. He drove off to investigate, and found his entire force of 3,000 men gone. He found one position still occupied by 100 of his troops, and they'd heard no troop movement, no sounds of an attack. (If the rest of this force had surrendered to the advancing Japanese, surely their movements would have been heard. Same if they had moved to another location, in addition to making contact with their CO.) They were written off as casualties of war; but even after the war, Japanese reports make no mention of having engaged, or captured the men of this force. Where'd they go? December 1937. (see Turkey, Gallipoli Peninsula)

Pangboche: A lamasery here has/had was was supposed to be the hand of a yeti. In 1959, Peter Byrne (1959 Slick expedition member) got a look at it. He partially disassembled it, replaced a thumb and finger with actual human parts, and swiped the yeti parts. They were then carried out of Nepal, and then smuggled out of India (customs being tougher in India, I guess). Anthropologists came to mixed conclusions, it appeared to be 'less than fully human'; possibly Neanderthal man. Blood tests showed the blood type was no known primate or human.
Zemu Glacier: A Yeti was seen pulling up flowers and left 6-7 inch long footprints behind (15,000 feet). 1925.

Tunguska: Scientists are still speculating over what happened here. Something descended here, a dazzling fireball, followed by a tremendous explosion. What exploded here, incinerating forests within an 11 mile radius of the blast? Trees were knocked down up to 25 miles away, and you could hear the explosion up to 600 MILES away. It's been estimated the energy expended was the equivalent of a very powerful nuclear blast. June 30, 1908.
Siberia somewhere: A Russian hunter was out in the forest when he ran into huge tracks in mud. They were about 2 feet across and 18 inches long, and appeared to be oval. He followed the tracks for days, occasionally finding huge piles of dung. He found traces of another one, with churned up mud; then the two sets of tracks went along together.

Gallipoli Pennisula (Suvla Bay): A British regiment, the First Fourth Norfolk prepared to attack Hill 60. We're talking over a thousand soldiers here. They marched uphill, to the top of Hill 60, which was covered by a mass of low clouds. There was a light breeze and it was a warm, otherwise clear day. The regiment marched uphill into these clouds and (most) were never seen again. Although this incident happened in 1915, some bodies from this regiment were found in 1920. The regiment was assumed to be casualties of war, with the bodies not located having died in a POW camp somewhere. But if they'd fought for this hill that day, wouldn't bodies been noticed a bit sooner than five years? Or the survivors having arrived in a POW camp recorded or reported somewhere? .August 28, 1915. (see China, Nanking)
USSR: (Or what used to be, because I don't know where most of these places are, now):
