PREVIOUSLY ON DAY 2
Obergefreiter Glatzeder was first to reappear saying, "We found the objects. They are uncountable." Von Stiehl then ordered as much as possible to be brought up. Later....
Herr von Stiehl! The objects, the treasure I mean, are huge. At most only one item can be carried at a time. I never imagined the possibility of pearls and jewels of such a great size. All of them are holed for the passage of rope. We are going to be rich! It reminds me of jewelry sir.
Hard to know Messmer. Carry on.
DAY 4 - MORNING
Major von Recker. Assemble everyone for the return to the camp at Northwest Bay.
Alright Peter. It's time to leave this place. Let's get the men in marching order.
Herr Major. Do you think we still have the firepower to keep attackers at bay?
Ja. I do. It's the natives I worry about most - should they bolt.
Kapitan Neumann: "Dummkopf, --- YOU --- come this way! "
In no time the treasure cave and it's jungle camouflage was left behind.
An advance guard preceded....

It started slowly with a bipedal monitor. Though shockingly fast, it was shot down.
A flock of flightless cassowaries obeyed the mui Pinga to protect their territory.
Though they got close, they too had no chance versus modern firepower.
Wild boars then stampeded into the column to be killed within an eyelash of maiming someone.
The column became disordered.
The pace picked up.
The head of the column reached the stream. On the other side was the safety of the Main Camp.
Some took satisfaction that only a few men had been lost until....
Men began screaming and dropping because....
On the other side survivors were put into order so as to not march shamefully into camp.
The camp and Northwest Bay in the distance relieved everyone's morale.
Safety surely. This way men!
