In the morning we went across to Jellyfish Lake and whilst the others went in with their cameras, Andy and I flew the drones and captured some scenic panoramas in the beautiful early morning light.
We took off the second dive to go exploring around the island of Peleliu and visited the WWII battlefield of Bloody Nose Ridge. It took us ten minutes to climb to the top of the ridge. It took the marines 73 days to accomplish the same thing, which gives you an idea of how fierce the fighting was in the most atrocious of conditions. We were bathed in sweat in a couple of minutes and I can’t imagine how it would have been to live like that in full battledress with all your kit for two months whilst fighting for your life.
